Sacred art makes references to an artistic production whose purpose is to worship what is sacred or divine. A very common mistake is to confuse it with religious art. The difference between these two concepts is that sacred art, in addition to being religious, must have a liturgical purpose.
It does not have to be related only to the Christian religion, but sacred art has several variants, such as Buddhism or Islam among others.
For example, in Cordoba there is a double typology of sacred art: Muslim and Christian. Both can be seen in Cordoba's most important monument, the Mosque-Cathedral.
In the Islam, to make or to represent images is forbidden by the Koran since it is possible to commit idolatry, it is for that reason that, according to the Islamic, art it is only possible to decorate in three different forms: geometric, vegetable and with Koranic inscriptions.
