What is "Bas Relief," and How Are These Pieces of Artwork Created?

"Bas Relief" is a form of art that has been used for centuries. In fact, if you have any coins in your pocket, you are carrying an example of "bas relief" art.

Bas Relief Sculptures have been executed for hundreds of years. Bas-relief is a method of sculpting which entails carving or etching away the surface of a flat piece of stone or metal. The word is derived from the Italian "basso rilievo" the literal translation meaning raised contrast.

In much the same way, Christian artist Betty Spooner has also used hand-made papyrus, bark or pulp, formed with the natural "deckle edge" intact as a substrate for the hand-cast originals sold here.

This is a close up of the hand-made papyrus paper used in these fine framed scripture art pieces As you can see from the close up of the substrate used in this artwork, it is hand-made of heavy fibers. The substrate is then formed using a molding process to have the scripture verses cast into the substrate.

After the substrate has dried, it is then hand-painted and finished in a multi- step process, custom matted and professionally framed in our specially-selected frames...

Only then is the piece individually wrapped in foam and cardboard before being packed in a heavy cardboard outer box for shipping to you. Each piece is unique in color and character
