Watercolour on paper. Hand painted copy of an illustration commissioned by William Roxburgh (1751-1815). In 'Flora Indica', Roxburgh notes that this species is found exclusively in the '...mountains and woods of great extent', where it flowers during the hot season. Inscribed 'Received from Rodney 9th June 1791', in an unknown hand, referring to the East India Company ship which delivered the drawings to London. The plant is rubbed inside water-vessels, it causes precipitation of impurities in cloudy water, also used as a medicine and timber source.
