Watercolour on paper, no date (late 18th, early 19th century). Hand painted copy of an illustration commissioned by William Roxburgh 1751-1815). In his 'Flora Indica', Roxburgh notes 'This species I have only found in its wild state; though the root is large, white, and reckoned very wholesome and palatable, and eaten by the natives.'
