Confusion produced by Moslem art creation (9)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'confusion' is the definition.
'produced by moslem art creation' is the subsidiary indication.
'produced by' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'creation' is an anagram indicator.
'moslem'+'art' is 'moslemart'.
'moslemart' is an anagram of 'maelstrom'.
(Other definitions for maelstrom that I've seen before include "Confusion", "fearsome current", "A powerful whirlpool", "Powerful circular current of water", "violent upheaval", "Large whirlpool", "Norwegian whirlpool", "confused state of affairs", "Strong circular current of water" and "Confused situation".)
