Islamic vs Christian Art
Islamic art does not depict humanized images of God or Muhammed, and the Hadith also prohibits the depictions of other zoomorphic creature (animals, humans, fauna).
Islamic religious art used things such as artistic calligraphy to represent religious significance and decoration.
Art such as the sculpture depicting a cow and calf would be allowed in luxury Islamic art, but not religious art because it is a representation of an animal, which the Hadith did not allow.
