Islamic calligraphy Relief a parrot. Pakistan, Lahore Central Museum. The development of calligraphy as an art is linked to the fact that Islam forbids the worship of figurative representations and calligraphy is offered in holy places a substitute for figural decoration. Instead of representing God or the prophet, or otherwise related to religion figurative Islamic art replaces them calligraphic representation of their names, or phrases from the Koran.
