Be guided by us through an exhibition that crosses cultures and continents, but has as its starting point ‘Ayurvedic Man’ – an 18th-century Nepali painting depicting the organs and vessels of the male body according to classical Ayurveda.

Visitor Experience Assistant Daniela explores a series of encounters: between ancient South Asian medical practice and modern biomedicine and between exquisite objects from the Ayurvedic tradition and the colonial-era collector.

Daniela is trained in audio description techniques by VocalEyes and has designed this tour for visitors who are blind or partially sighted.
