Orpheus - Eurydice - Hermes

Although Apollo's son softened the underworld with music and education, so that his nymph wife was returned to him, he turned - overwhelmed by love - to her, almost at the end of the way, when the day light became visible. Thus he broke the gods’ order and not even Hermes, rushing over, could prevent her vanishing into shadows. Original: Staatliche Museen zu Berlin - Preußischer Kulturbesitz. Attic, around 410 B.C., Roman copy of an original assigned to Phidias, marble. Polymer ars mundi museum replica, hand-cast. Format 52 x 62 cm with suspension device.

An art work that is cut in from a stone or wooden surface, not modeled in the round.

According to the degree of projection one can distinguish between low-relief or bas-relief and high relief. The sunk relief is a common form of reliefs in Ancient Egypt, where the depicted scenes were cut into the stone or wood surface.

Among the most famous reliefs are the works of the Florentine master Lorenzo Ghiberti. He created, among others, the bronze doors of the Florence Baptistery, called by Michelangelo the "Gates of Paradise".
