Description:

Locate and waymark all Relief Art Sculptures throughout the world, starting in your own town! (Note: Reliefs that form part of an object that falls into another category are no longer accepted). The relief MUST be a stand-alone piece of art -- not attached to or forming part of an object that can be submitted in another category (such as Frieze Art, all statue categories, all sculpture categories and any other category where relief artwork is part of a broader piece of work).
Expanded Description:
Relief Art can be defined as the carving or sculpting of an otherwise flat surface to create a design or feature. Included within the realms of Relief Art Sculpture are; bas relief, high relief and sunken. This category aims to catalog relief art sculpture of all forms.

Bas Relief, pronounced 'bah ree-leef', is a French term derived from the Italian phrase 'basso-relievo', which translates in English to 'low relief'. Typically with bas relief the depth of a image is shallow, with the background very compressed or completely flat. Coins are generally good examples of bas relief.

High Relief, otherwise known as 'Alto-relievo', sculptures differs from Bas Relief due to the prominent feature within the sculpture are 'under-cut' or have at least 50% of the depth of the object projecting from the sculpture. 'Mount Rushmore', in the USA, is an example of high relief sculpture.

Sunken Relief, also known as intaglio or hollow-relief, sculptures have the reversed of the above two types, where the features are carved 'into', rather than protruding from the sculpture. Egyptian carved walls are good examples of sunken relief.

Good examples of relief art sculptures can be found here on the Wikipedia page here.

Only relief art specifically sculptured as individual pieces of stand-alone artwork or recognized historical reliefs will be accepted by this category.

For example, don't submit relief work that isn't artistic in nature or is part of a larger sculpture or architectural body of work that can be submitted into another category (such as Frieze Art). Frieze Art may contain relief art sculptures and relief work that form part of a facade of a building. Please submit relief sculptural artwork as part of a frieze into the Frieze Art category.

If a single relief sculpture on a building is the ONLY artwork as part of a building's architecture, then it may be submitted into this category (see examples here, here, and here).
