Islam Or Moorish

When the Moslem power spread abroad, a new style followed, known as Islam or Moorish. The Moslem religior prohibited the use of human or animal forms in paintings or decorations, so their art was confined to geometric and vegetable ornament. They were very skillful in artistic interlacing and interweaving of araliesque and geometrical ornament and the use of rich and vivid coloring. Their use of the horseshoe and ogee arch was another characteristic feature of the period. Their work was confined chiefly to mosques and buildings, and not much furniture was produced.
