The art in early Jewish and Christian art was usually images mostly of Christ. We don’t see many false idols just images of individuals such as saints or animals these however in my opinion were not intended to be worshipped just art. I believe that both Jewish and Christian art obeyed the second commandment simply because only images of Christ were worshipped although they had other images of individual and beings these images were just showing their religion not worshipping them. These religions wanted to show visually what their devotion was to their religion they included other individuals to help people better understand their religion and to spread their beliefs onto those around them.
