Depictions of Mohammed

DanishCartoon07.jpgWith global controversy mounting over the publication of the now infamous Mohammed cartoons in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten, someone had a great idea: compile images of Mohammed found across history into one massive collection. The Mohammed Image Archive was born. Mirror links were soon set up in a number of countries to make the collection more accessible. To see countless depictions of Mohammed classified into many different categories, check it out. And be forewarned, the "Extreme Mohammed" section is just that.

As you may have heard, May 20, 2010, is to be "draw Mohammed day." If you are like me and have now drawing ability whatsoever, you might have to settle for living vicariously through some of these images.
