'Tabiyat: Medicine and Healing in India’ examined the history and contemporary practice of sustaining human health in one of the world’s great civilisations. The exhibition featured dazzling antiquities and modern vernacular art in an aesthetically seductive, intellectually rich mix of art, science, history and the ordinary made extraordinary.
Tabiyat was held at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya
(formerly Prince of Wales Museum) between 11 January and 28 March 2016. Exhibits from Wellcome Collection in London included the only known historical illustration of the interior of the human body as understood by Ayurveda.
Other exhibits included loans from museums and private collections in India as well as newly commissioned work.
