As part of the Flora of Nepal exhibition, a group of artists collaborated to create a thangka (थान्का - pronounced [ˈt̪ʰaŋka] in Nepalese) - a pictorial chart - showcasing all the Nepalese plants that feature in the exhibition. Painted by botanical artists Sharon Tingey and Jacqui Pestell, here they tell the story and ideas behind it.

You can see both the finished painting, and the Nepalese thangka that first inspired Jacqui and Sharon, in the 'Flora of Nepal' exhibition, which continues at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh until 13 November 2016 - rbge.org.uk/whats-on/event-details/4318
