A miniature, both classic and modern, is not merely a beautiful picture. Great importance is attached to the idea expressed in it. This is very obvious in Abduhokim's complex compositions with many figures. There is not a single detail, which does not serve some specific purpose. The language of miniature painting has a standard set of symbols and metaphors. However, Karimov has introduced some symbols of his own. His works always show spring, the blossoming of nature. Every detail, be it an animal, a bird, a tree or landscape, and even the arrangement itself, serves to create a certain intended mood and image. For instance, the horizontal format of the miniature 'Journey' stresses the idea of its long duration.
