Tour of Ayurvedic Man: Encounters with Indian Medicine

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.
