  The Islamic art collection at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, LACMA
The art of Islamic Spain during this period is somewhat less inventive and energetic than that produced elsewhere, which may have to do with the relative isolation of Spain and North Africa under conservative Almoravid and Almohad rule.
Architectural decoration, the arts of the book, textiles, glass, metalwork, and pottery all attained a high level, enriched by a decorative vocabulary that was frequently dominated by figural representation.
