Indian miniature painting of 14th Century as seen in Chhatrapati Shivaji Museum, Mumbai

Indian miniature paintings started as illustrations of sacred text written on long narrow palm leaves bound together to form a bundle. But in 14th Century C.E. paper became an alternative for palm leaves in Indian literature.
