A Turkish miniature take on the movies

by Salman Hameed

Now this is really cool! A Turkish artist, Murat Palta, has created movie posters of famous films in the genre of Turkish miniature paintings (tip from Tabsir). And this was done as part of his graduation thesis. You can see more posters and details of individual panels on his website: Classic Movies in Miniature Style. Here are couple of examples:

Star Wars (easily the favorite!):

The Godfather (love the horse in there...):

The Shining:

Go visit his website here and check out the other movie posters as well as details in each scene.

Nice pictures. Gives a very medival and Islamic touch to the films.
