Bas-relief is a type of relief (sculpture) that has less depth to the faces and figures than they actually have, when measured proportionately (to scale). This technique keeps the natural shapes of the figures and allows the work to be seen from many angles without twisting the figures themselves.

Bas-relief is an artistic technique that involves lightly carving a design into a surface. Most coins have images stamped on them in bas relief.

In general, relief makes an artwork look like the picture is raised up from a flat background. There are two types of relief, high and low — or bas-relief. Bas-relief is distinguished by the relative shallowness of the image, and you can see it in a lot of ancient Egyptian art.

I perhaps should be working on a bas-relief of True Parents.
