So intricate. Watched a art documentary recently. The debate is whether our ceilings were better than theirs. What is clear is that they influenced each other. Especially, the Sistine Chapel. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sistine_Chapel_ceiling They are very different where Islam would regard the Sistine Chapel as idolatry. However, Muslims have depicted humans and animals in their art at various times and places in their history.ReplyDelete
Both are extraordinary works of art and craftsmanship.Delete
