Carving in style of bas-relief - high-relief
Glad to welcome you on this website, dedicated to exclusive hand-made work - carving in style of bas- relief and high-relief.
Relief ( French УreliefТ from Italian УrelevoФ - to raise) is a sculptural technique.
There are different degrees of relief depending on the degree of projection of the sculptured form from thi field. It includes shallow relief or relieve stiacciado, where the plane is scarcely more than scratched in order to remove background material, and of course bas- relief and high- relief.
Bas- relief (French Уlow reliefТ) is a projecting image with a shallow overall depth on which all images are in low relief.
It is usually on monuments, coins, medals.
High- relief (alto rilievo) is where in general more than half the mass of the sculpted figure projects from the background.
