Kanopy Documentary: The Hidden Art of Islam (2013, NR)

May 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Running Time: 57 minutes

Release Date: 2013

Muslim belief and tradition specifies that there should be no depictions of God or the Prophet Muhammad. In religious contexts, this constraint on what artists can depict extends to human figures and other living creatures as well. These prohibitions have inspired a rich visual culture based on calligraphy, Arabesque floral designs, and geometry, all of which feature strongly in the art and design found throughout Islam.
