Miniatures are explanatory pictures placed in hand writings in order to clarify the text. Miniatures are significant documents depicting historical events and relaying on life style, traditions and customs of their period.
We encountered ornamental plants and Ottoman garden samples in the motifs used in the events that were depicted in miniatures. Portrayal of Turkish gardens with picturing methods have been done since the 16th century in garden pictures in some miniatures. In Ottoman miniatures, which made up the subject itself or which were background in events depicted in the miniature, we encountered motifs that always existed and with characteristics parallel to the general development and modification of the miniature art.
In this study, the Ottoman period was emphasized in respect to use of ornamental plants in the art of miniature, miniature art, miniature, and the meanings they brought to the landscape architecture. The use of ornamental plants, generated from past depicted in the art of miniature gardens and orchards with reference to the common points of comparison were taken into consideration.
