Islamic Religious Art
Christian religious art pieces were allowed to have spiritual figures such as Jesus on them, but Islamic art strayed away from using those figures in their art pieces.
The Islamic culture used tiles and mosaics to decorate their mosques.
Islamic luxury arts were allowed to have human figures and animals on their pieces because the art was for personal use and not for mosques.
