Bas Relief. A relief is a sculpture executed upon a flat surface, but that is not completely detached from it. Strictly speaking, relief sculpture is subdivided into "high relief", where the figures project entirely, or almost, from the surface they are carved, the "semi relief", which presents figures that are rounded to half their natural proportions but without detached parts, and the "bas relief", a form of relief in which the projection is very slight.
