Islamic art vs christian art

Assignment 13

As we can see in this peice of art, Christian religious art was factored around Jesus being the main focus as opposed to Islamic art where human figures were not idolized and not allowed to be shown as important religious figures.
This piece shows a religious piece of Islamic art being decorated by colorful symbols and words from the Quran as this sheet is from.
This piece would be allowed in secular Islamic art because it is showing a woman of the historic time in Qatar. In religious Islamic art, this would not be allowed because a woman is being showed as a gloriying figure.
