Islamic Art

Assignment 13

I chose this image because in Christian art God is represented figuratively whereas in Islamic religious art, there is no just way to represent God figuratively and therefore drawing a picture of God is forbidden
I chose this symmetrical image of flowers and nature. I chose symmetrical because symmetry is used frequently in Islamic art for decoration, and the pictures of nature was very common in these religious and decorative aspects as well.
I chose the Figurine of Cow and Calf because in Religious Islamic Art, Zoomorphic figures were not allowed, but in luxurious Islamic art they were very much appreciated.
