Christian and Islamic religious art
Christian art allows for human and animal images which is prohibited in Islamic religious art.
Islamic religious art uses mosaics and ceramic tiles with varying colors, medallions, and writings of the Koran.
Though religious art had to adhere to stricter decorative codes, luxury arts did not. Luxury items for private patrons could depict zoomorphic and faunal details.
