Purpose: Through theoretical considerations such as literature and research data on the pattern of Dun-huang, this study presents the academic systematization, a study on the artist value of Dunhuang patterns and a new possibility of application in the field of design utilizing the pattern of Dunhuang as a motif. Method: Through the collection of data on the design patterns of Dunhuang art, the materials of Dunhuang art are being used the most in the design field and can be used easily. By analyzing the literature and classify-ing the components of the Dunhuang art pattern, the value was analyzed. Results: The expression of the value of the Dunhuang pattern is analyzed into four characteristics which are artistic value, aesthetic value, cultural value, and economic value. Dunhuang pattern design tradition highlights the artistic expression form. The historical and economic value of traditional culture which satisfies both mental, visual and aesthetic effects were increased. Also analyzing the artistic value of the pattern of Dunhuang will help in the development and creation of the modern design field. Conclusion: By presenting the classification and artistic value of Dunhuang pattern design academically when attempting to develop a variety of designs for the Dunhuang as a formative art in the field, it is highly utilized as a formative art and exhibits fusion creative ability. It is a design material that combines both art techniques, and the number of numbers is theoretically systematized.
