Among the Ten Commandments is:

Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image, nor any manner of likeness, of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth (Exodus 20:3, JPS)

emphasis was added above which clarifies that no image nor its similitude in any manner is allowed.

According to history, paintings have also been converted to Idolatry for worship after some passage of time.

I have seen paintings in Jewish places. Are such paintings allowed?
