ABSTRACT

Image of opposing leaves in Sinhala palm-leaf medical manuscripts (ca 1700) also known as Medical charms (MS S6). The brittle leaves are tied together with a single cord. Drawing on one leaf might depict a medical professional in traditional dress. The opposing leaf is of a linear pattern with repeating doodles. The red lacquered board covers are barely visible. Sinhalese physicians deployed these manuscripts as signs of medical learning and prestige. Medical charms were employed for health and wellbeing bridging the line between magic and early medicine.
