A miniature is a small picture involving very small detailed painting. This title is chiefly used for the painting of the East where the rules of perspective and anatomy are not observed. Some people think that the word is French composed of two words – minimum and nature. The equivalent word in Persian mean painting. Landscape painting in Persian is often imaginary and fictitious. The artists believe that man is the axis of life. They do not care for light effects as they are absorbed by the glory of the divine light. Minute care and attention to detail is a particular manifestation of Persian landscape painting. Etching using fine lines gives a sense of perspective.
