Miniature art is fine art on a small scale with minute attention to detail which can be enlarged or withstand close inspection without revealing any faults.
A representational subject should be no larger than 1/6th or smaller than their actual size. Subjects too small for portrayal in 1/6th or smaller than their actual size may meet the spirit of a miniature if the work meets the above definition of miniature art. Non-representational work such as abstracts may meet the spirit of a miniature of all other factors in the definition of a miniature are met.
