https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aniconism_in_Islam is pretty interesting.

"*Aniconism <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aniconism> in Islam* is a
proscription in Islam <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam> against the
creation of images of sentient living beings."

"The Quran <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quran>, the Islamic holy book
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_holy_books>, does not explicitly
prohibit the depiction of human figures; it merely condemns idolatry

"Judaism <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judaism>, which is related to Islam
as a monotheistic faith of Adam, Abraham, Moses
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moses> (Mūsa
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moses_in_Islam>), and other prophets,
has a comparable
prohibition <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idolatry_in_Judaism> which takes
the form of a prohibition on any idol
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cult_image> or on any artistic
representation of God <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_in_Judaism>."
