The world-view underlying the Ottoman miniature painting was also different from that of European Renaissance Painting tradition. The painters did not aim to depict the human beings and other living or non-living beings realistically. They despised mimesis like Platon because according to the world view of sufism the worldly beings were not permanent and worth adoring. The Ottoman artists wanted to hint at an infinite and transcendent reality (that is Allah, according to the Sufism's pantheistic point of view) with their paintings so they stylized and abstracted all the things depicted.
