Interesting that you derive or at least associate Islamic style with the Pharaonic works....
This is an overlooked and subtle connection, which does not immediately strike the eye.
To the westerner, Islamic work seems more fluid and expressive and of different provenance from, for instance, the ancient Egyptian style with its rectilinear feeling; at the same time it is remarkable that in even the most vehement Islamic centres, there are staunch yet silent protectors and preservationists of the pre-Islamic works.
I believe this is an unresolved question, standing in sharp contrast, for example , to the situation vis a vis Hindu or Buddhist
structures in Islamic regions...
