art

Art in Islam is dominated by geometric designs usually with patterns, colour, texture and calligraphy. Islamic art is different because it is not just decorative but reminds the viewer of Allah (pbuh). A lot of Islamic art is used for carpets, on buildings, especially mosques, as well as to hang on the wall.
