Miniature paintings, as their name suggests, are compact (usually not more than a few square inches) yet, intricate. They were introduced during the Mughal rule. Despite their size, these paintings were stunningly precise and detailed with some lines being painted with brushes made of a single strand of squirrel hair. They were highly sought after by art enthusiasts and were featured in various ivory panels, manuscripts and books from that period. However, they are now painted on synthetic boards instead.
Pictured here is a miniature painting of Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity. From the clothes to the individually painted eyelashes, the entire painting is complexly designed making it alluring to the beholder.
