MINIATURE ART - JAPANESE HOME

MINIATURE ART

Miniature paintings and sculptures are fine art on a small scale, with minute attention to detail, which can be enlarged or withstand close inspection without revealing its faults. A miniature can convey all the beauty and power of a larger work of art but has the added appeal of being a particularly personal object. The viewer must view the work at close range to obtain a full appreciation of both the image and technique. The miniature has always had a feeling of preciousness associated with it due in part to the fact that it can usually be held in the palm of your hand.

I bought the set from a store about a year ago and started doing it but with 2 kids I really didn’t get the time to concentrate enough to finish it, so it was my husband Yo who finished this.

In the picture you can see a traditional Japanese house with a low table and bench. Food is laid on the table and there are other Japanese staples. Minute attention is given to ensure that everything is perfect, so there are small things that have to be stuck looking at a picture provided. (You can see in the close-up photo above) This was actually bought by Yo for my 5 year old to develop concentration and give attention to minute details, but we are the ones who ended up doing it with her help ofcourse.


Do try miniature art. It really builds up your concentration and patience.
