Rules of Islamic Art
Traditional Islam prohibits the use of human or animal representation in religious art, whereas Christianity permits these images.
Rather than using zoomorphic forms, Islamic art uses calligraphy and motifs for decoration.
Unlike traditional, religious Islamic art, luxury Islamic art allowed the images of animals and people.
