Classical church wall decor– religious marble carving relief sculpture


Wall art relief is a sculptural technique where the sculpted elements remain attached to a solid background of the same material. The term marble carving relief is from the Latin verb relevo, to raise. To create a sculpture in relief is to give the impression that the sculpted material has been raised above the background plane.

The distinction between high and low religious marble carving relief is somewhat subjective, and the two are very often combined in a single work. In particular, most later “high reliefs” contain sections in low relief, usually in the background. From the Parthenon Frieze onwards, many single figures in large monumental sculpture have heads in high relief, but their lower legs are in low relief. The slightly projecting figures created in this way work well in reliefs that are seen from below, and reflect that the heads of figures are usually of more interest to both artist and viewer than the legs or feet.

Classical church wall decor of religious marble carving relief :Mid-relief, “half-relief” or mezzo-rilievo is somewhat imprecisely defined, and the term is not often used in English, the works usually being described as low relief instead. The typical traditional definition is that only up to half of the subject projects, and no elements are undercut or fully disengaged from the background field.
