Religious art comparisons
Islamic religious art has very complex geometrical patterns, as seen in this photo. Christian art does not use patterns this way.
For decorative, Islamic art uses floral patterns which can give off a calming effect, and also creating an infinite pattern. Which connects to religion; their belief in eternity.
For secular/luxury Islamic art, Calligraphy is more common. Calligraphy is for decoration and not necessarily directly connected to religion.
