Sculptures- Three Dimentional Art

Sculpture is the branch of the visual arts that operates in three dimensions.

There are low relief sculture and high relief sculptures.

Low relief sculture is that the figures exist almost on the same plane as the ground, but they are carved with enough depth to cast shadows.

 In high relief, at least half of the figures project forward from the surface.
