Wise Ways Wullie
Wise Ways Wullie is a colourful representation of the Dundee physician, surgeon and polymath Dr Thomas Wise who was born in Dundee in 1802. Wise collected a fantastic array of objects from his travels in Tibet, India, China and Japan, which include incredibly detailed hand drawn maps of Tibet. Thanks to a loan from the British Library, these rare maps have been reunited with Wise's collection of curiosities at The McManus: Dundee's Art Gallery and Museum for their summer exhibition, Wise Ways: Travels of a Dundee Doctor.
