Talk Ayurvedic Medicine tour

Ayurvedic Medicine tour

Synopsis

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

This live subtitled tour has been designed for visitors who are deaf or hard of hearing.

Places are free but very limited. If you would like to come along, please email access@wellcomecollection.org or call 020 7611 2222.
