Stone Reliefs, Etching

( 1,199 )

Relief is a sculptural technique in which sculpted natural stone remains attached to a solid background made of the same stone material. To make a sculpture in relief is to give the feeling that the carved stone material rises above the background plane. CNC machines can do great engraving wall relief work in a very short time. In addition, using the latest advanced laser technology, the machines create unique personalized and photo-engraved gifts, plaques and memorial stones.

What are types of relief sculpture?

There are three main types of relief sculpture:

  1. Low relief(bas relief), where the sculpture projects only slightly from the background surface;
  2. High relief(alto-relief), where the sculpture projects at least half or more of its natural circumference from the background, and may in parts be wholly disengaged from the ground, thus approximating sculpture in the ground.
  3. Sunken relief, where the carving is sunk below the level of the surrounding surface and is contained within a sharply incised contour line that frames it with a powerful line of shadow. The surrounding surface remains untouched, with no projections. Sunken relief carving is found almost exclusively in ancient Egyptian art, although it has also been used in some beautiful small-scale ivory reliefs from India.

What is the difference between freestanding and relief sculpture?

Relief sculpture can be seen from only one vantage point, usually straight on. Sculpture-in-the-round is freestanding and finished on all sides. A viewer can move all the way around a sculpture-in-the round, and is able to look at the work from multiple vantage points.

What is low relief and high relief?

Posted by Visitor

reply icon Reply to this question 1Reply

There are two subcategories of relief sculpture – high relief and low relief, also called bas relief. High relief sculpture stands out from the flat surface, sometimes to a great degree. In contrast, low relief sculpture does not stand out as much and may feature parts that are indented into the flat surface.
