I selected this image because in Christian art images of holy figures are commonly represented. However in Islamic art, images of holy figures such as God or Muhammad were not allowed to be represented.
I selected this image because in Islamic mosques, palaces, and other sacred places artisans decorated which rich materials such as brass, ivory, metal, wood,and glass.
This last image was selected because of the vivid color scheme, intricate decorative detailing, and the representation of humans and animals that were embodied in the secular Islamic art.
