Relief (from Italian, rilievare: to raise) is a sculptural technique. This technique is quite ancient, and it has been used independently in many cultures from Mesoamerica to India. It is believed to have pre-dated sculpture, as it is easier to create than a free-standing full-figure.
Contemporary neo-classical reliefs can be found on the fa�es and in interiors of numerous buildings in many nations of the world. Many are in classical Roman or Greek style while others reflect a more natural approach to form, even some in an unfinished style reminiscent of Michelangelo's later sculptures.
Many beautiful relief sculptures can be found on front fa�es on the most beautiful burgher houses in Munich, Germany.
The face in this photograph so sad - it hurts to look at it. It screams a sculpted language we can never hear ...
