Life in Miniature
Discover nature, love, celebrations, faith and power in Indian miniatures.
The earliest Indian miniature paintings date to 10th century CE, forming part of manuscripts kept in monasteries, the texts and images being ritually worshipped. They tell stories of lived experiences, and the form evolved over centuries, with Islamicate and Persian influences, through palm leaf to paper, and to using materials like lapis lazuli.
