Prophet Mohammed as Hilarious Puppet

Prophet Mohammed as Hilarious Puppet

http://char.txa.cornell.edu/nonwest/islam/islamhis.htm

The first characteristic of Islamic art is a limitation set by Islamic law (Hadith): Images of living beings, human or animal, are forbidden. This is because of the emphasis on the unity and singularity of God, and the prohibition against idol worship.

... making images of animals or humans is to challenge Allah who created all things.
