Why did Muslims produce the type of art they did?

Muslims are still creating art!

You will see a wide variety of artistic styles often influenced by the styles of neighboring cultures and the pre-Islamic culture of the region. Therefore,a Muslim artist in France will be influenced in ways different from a Muslim artist in Indonesia.

You will indeed see much calligraphic art, often verses from the Qu'ran, because learning the words of this book is important in Islamic culture and religion. This is similar to some Hebrew calligraphic art and is not unlike the Christian custom of putting Bible verses with inspiring images.

You will also see repeating geometric, vegetal or floral elements in much Islamic art, called an arabesque. The arabesque often used to symbolize the transcendent and infinite nature of God. Mistakes in repetitions may be intentionally included as a show of humility by artists who believe that only God can produce perfection, similar to such mistakes seen in the repeating patterns of Amish quilts.

What you will rarely see is a representation of the human form, which many Muslims consider to be idolatry.
