The Mughal Miniatures are finely crafted artworks with vivid patterns and colours.
They are a blend of India, European, and Persian style of painting. The characteristic
feature includes delicate lines and a use of bold and vivid colours. They are small in
size and range within a few square inches. These artistic creations are known for
their richness of style and a highly intricate design that needs a magnifying glass to
note all the subtleties. Traditionally, the artists make use of natural colours that they
derive from real silver and gold, pearls, shells, precious stones, and indigo. Mughal
miniatures are highly detailed paintings mostly used to illustrate manuscripts and art
books. Despite their tiny sizes, they are incredibly precise, with some lines painted
using brushes composed of a single hair.
