  1. sculptural relief

    Sculptural relief is a sculpting technique where the sculpted elements remain attached to a solid background of the same material, projecting out from this background to various degrees. The degree of projection determines the categorization of the relief as low, high, or sunken. It is often used in architectural contexts and in decorative arts to depict complex scenes, stories or symbolism.
