The delicate, impeccably detailed miniature paintings of Hasan Kale often require a magnifying glass to be able to see the nuances but can take months to complete.Some of his best-known pieces include a scene from the movie "Pulp Fiction" on the side of a piece of popcorn. The 60-year-old artist, who has never had a formal art teacher, began researching miniature art in the 1980s.Kale has used some 300 items and revels in the idea that any forgettable item, from a pebble in the sea to a fish bone that gets stuck in your teeth, could become a work of art.As it was for Osman in the 16th century, it remains painstaking work and Kale often paints for around 16 to 18 hours a day and goes without sleep.
