Today I learned a new word. I was reviewing a schedule of fine art insurance and came across a word which I was not familiar, Intaglio Art.
Intaglio Art, what can this be? So off to the land of Google search, I came across the definition in Wikipedia;
Intaglio is a technique in art, in which an image is created by cutting, carving or engraving into a flat surface and may also refer to objects made using these techniques:
- Intaglio (printmaking), a group of printmaking techniques with an incised image.
- Intaglio (jewelry), or engraved gem, similar techniques in jewelry.
- Intaglio (sculpture), also known as counter-relief, distinct from relief.
- Intaglio (burial mound), a similar technique for decorating burial mounds with geoglyphs.
- Blythe Intaglios, large Native American designs on the ground in California.
- In wood carving, more correctly known in English as inlay.
I then looked up some pictures and this stuff is really cool
