In the exhibition in the Castle you will discover a wealth of plants and flowers. You will be introduced to the botanical illustration art of Marijke Meersman. 

A short animated film provides a nice moment of pause. This film was made especially for this exhibition. 

A book brings together different worlds: art, nature, science, history and philately.

The book,” Marijke Meersman, Nature in Miniature / La Nature en Miniature “ is a bilingual edition .

ISBN: 9789464079678 - NUR: 640 / 420 / 430 - Depot number - Numéro de dépôt : D/2021/Marijke Meersman, publisher.
