Carter - I believe the part about pictures is in the interpretation of one of the ten commandments.

'You shall not make for yourself a carved image--any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.'

There are many versions of this same commandment. I think this (I could be wrong) is what Mohammed borrowed from Judaism and of course went way over board with it.

Take care !!!
