Islamic wall art can be divided into three main categories: calligraphy, canvas painting, and wall rugs, among which, since Iranian miniature painting is a unique style of wall painting, it is an essential branch of wall art by itself.

In Islam, painting faces with many details is not common. Still, the idea that this is forbidden is also a misconception. For example, in the Persian miniature painting, which deals with minor details, most of the details of human faces are also visible.

Still, we can say that Muslims have a problem drawing the details of the faces of religious leaders, including the Prophet, maybe idolatry. Therefore, they usually do not paint the look of the Prophet or angels and draw light instead. You can see canvas paintings on the online art gallery of CyrusCrafts' website.

Recently, with the trend of minimalist wall art, minimalist Islamic wall paintings have also increased and have found a special place among the lovers of this art style.

With more than ten thousand years of civilization, Iranians have created and preserved extraordinary works of art, many of which are now in museums worldwide. With the emergence of Islam in Arab countries, it did not take long for Islam to spread to Iran, the largest empire of that time, and in the neighborhood of Mecca. Therefore, people combined Iranian and Islamic arts and invented unique artworks.

Many of these artworks have survived all over the world today because many independent Islamic countries today were part of the great empire of Iran at the time.
