About the Artist: "I specialize in paintings with precious gemstones. People find them to be unique. In this way, I have given an original touch to an ancient style of painting." Miniature paintings are one of India's unique and legendary art forms, characterized by their beauty and finesse. Though originally small in size, the term applies to a style of painting that is rich in detail that is meticulously executed with delicate brushwork. Colors were once obtained from minerals, vegetables, precious stones, conch shells, silver and gold.
