A relief (in Italian rilievo) is a sculpted image or scene that protrudes from a wall. Reliefs are a sub-set of material culture and their subject matter generally concerns religious scenes or significant historical events. Venetian reliefs have long served as reminders of important events in the history of the city and of related mythology illustrating both the popular artistic styles of the time and the legends that were most prevalent in certain neighborhoods. For more information concerning the creation of reliefs, please see the relief page.
