( d ) I'm affraid that this is not accurate,you can limit some of the prohibition and
restriction of the artistic taboo to human and animal figures(and even for these conditions there's lots of exceptions) and the case of Taj Mahal can be described as perfect examples of a tyrant king rather than a religious manifestation.....
a similar scenario happened with Mogol invaders when they invade Baghdad in medieval Abbasid period of ancient Iraq,as I remember they did kill all the inhabitants of the city with the exception of the skilled craftmen and I guess Timor Lank another mogol king from a later period had to cut the hands of all the craftmen that build his new capital to insure that their marvels will not repeated elsewhere!
this is medieval logic and in a period when the crafts and architecture documentation were oral and the loss and tragedies of artists and architects were huge.
