Islamic religious art prohibits the depiction of humans and advanced animals such as tigers or eagles, while Christian art does not.
Islamic art uses things such as arabesque, which is artistic decoration consisting of surface decorations based on rhythmic linear patterns of scrolling and interlacing foliage, or plain lines.
The depiction of people/animals is allowed in luxury Islamic art because it is difficult to define because it covers many lands and various peoples over some 1400 years and is different mediums.
