Answer Relief , or relievo rilievo , is a sculptural technique. The term relief is from the Latin verb levo , to raise. To create a sculpture in relief is to give the impression that the sculpted material has been raised above the background plane.What is actually performed when a relief is …cut in from a flat surface of stone or wood is a lowering of the field, leaving the unsculpted parts seemingly raised. The technique involves considerable chiselling away of the background, which is a time-consuming exercise with little artistic effect if the lowered background is left plain, as is often the case. On the other hand, a relief saves forming the rear of a subject, and is less fragile and more securely fixed than a sculpture in the round, especially one of a standing figure where the ankles are a potential weak point, especially in stone. In other materials such as metal, clay, plaster stucco, ceramics or papier-mache the form can be just added to or raised up from the background, and monumental bronze reliefs are made by casting. There are different degrees of relief depending on the degree of projection of the sculpted form from the field, for which the Italian appellations are still sometimes used. The full range includes high relief ( alto-rilievo ), where more than 50% of the depth is shown and there may be undercut areas, mid-relief ( mezzo-rilievo ), low-relief ( basso-rilievo , or French: bas-relief ), and shallow-relief or rilievo schiacciato , where the plane is scarcely more than scratched in order to remove background material. There is also sunk relief , which was mainly restricted to Ancient Egypt. However the distinction between high relief and low relief is the clearest and most important, and these two are generally the only terms used to discuss most work. The definition of these terms is somewhat variable, and many works combine areas in more than one of them, sometimes sliding between them in a single figure; accordingly some writers prefer to avoid all distinctions.The opposite of relief sculpture is counter-relief , intaglio, or cavo-rilievo, where the form is cut into the field or background rather than rising from it; this is very rare in monumental sculpture. Reliefs are common throughout the world on the walls of buildings and a variety of smaller settings, and a sequence of several panels or sections of relief may represent an extended narrative. Relief is more suitable for depicting complicated subjects with many figures and very active poses, such as battles, than free-standing "sculpture in the round". Most ancient architectural reliefs were originally painted, which helped to define forms in low relief. The subject of reliefs is for convenient reference assumed in this article to be usually figures, but sculpture in relief often depicts decorative geometrical or foliage patterns, as in the arabesques of Islamic art, and may be of any subject.

Assume you mean "by air" (although driving is possible). Cheapest option is via Istanbul with Turkish Airlines. Trip is not bad however, depending on which day of the week you fly, your journey could include a technical stop in Ljubljana, Slovenia (lasts 45minutes; no plane change;only to allow n…ew passengers who presumably travel the return leg Zag-Ist). Same applies for the return trip back to Dubai so to avoid this inconvenience, just make sure you come/leave on the 'right day'. (MORE)

Croatia is located in Europe/Eurasia and there is not much to say about it considering no one knows it exists. But a few facts I have learned are these... Croatia was said to be founded in the 7th century, though no one actually knows. There is an legend that it was founded by 5 brothers and 2 sist…ers. It's population is said to be only 23 people. It is a Guiness world record holder for smallest town in the world. The White House was built out of Croatian stone.

Current Status and Trends in Forest of CROATIA ABSTRACT Private forests account for about twenty percent of the total forested area in the Republic of Croatia. Private forest owners mainly belong to the older rural population. In view of the global situation, forests worldwide attrac…t special attention. The Kyoto Protocol will prevent any neglectful attitude toward forests by the participating countries and oblige them to care for their health and apply sustainable management. Non-government sectors, such as associations, initiatives and various forms of non-institutional societies are becoming more and more powerful. The management of natural resources is a particularly sensitive area, and so is interference with human rights and the rights of private ownership. Former big forest owners in Croatia are demanding restitution of their forests in natural form. This paper deals with policy implications on rural development as a result of the changing nature of small-scale forestry and the external support of small-scale forestry. Key words: forest policy, private forests, status, trends, management 1. INTRODUCTION Private forests cover around twenty percent of the total forested area in the Republic of Croatia, amounting to approximately 500 thousand hectares. Half of these are on the littoral coast. Consisting of about 1.5 million land parts, these areas are managed by almost 600 thousand owners. The size of the average forestland property is 0.76 ha. The estimated wood mass in private forests is about 80m3 /ha, with growing stock manifesting a downward trend. This is considerably lower than the wood mass in national forests, which amounts to around 190m3 /ha. Private forest owners mainly belong to the older rural population. Many of them do not manage their forest property, or they live a long distance away from their forests. There is almost no government support to private forestry, and neither is there any related scientific research. The majority of forestry experts are not specialized in the management of small forest estates. Younger forest owners do not show much interest in working and investing in forests. So far, not one single forest owner in Croatia has been reported to earn his living solely (or largely) from his forest, nor has any forest owner successfully managed his own forest. Moreover, all public services (financed by forest owners), costs, taxes and forest financing are supplied by "Hrvatske sume"Ltd., an enterprise whose primary function is national forest management. Private forest owners and the Croatian public receive very little information about forestry. There is no forest-related education and no communication between government bodies and forest owners. Management plans for private forests are not being renewed, while valid plans entail only 8% of the entire area. Logging is carried out within the limits of the allowed volume of the necessary assignment, without following any management guidelines and prescribed silvicultural activities. Such a situation does not stimulate forest owners to develop interest in their forest property; on the contrary, it leads to further devastation and decrease in the growing stock in private forests. Management is based on the principle of one-time consumption of the most Current status and trends in forests of Croatia . (MORE)
