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.
Right now it is 11.13 pm, 3rd of December 2008.. He he. Croatia is in CET zone
Croats called themselves Hrvati and Croatia is Hrvatska in Croatian. But long before 7th century (it's estimated that's the time when Croats immigrated to today's Croatia)…, there was a region which was named Croatia by Romans. English speaking countries and many other adopted that word... Similar story with Greece which is actually Hellas in Greek.

The Kuna is the currency
Well My parents are from Croatia and I speak Croatian too and go their every summer. They use Kuna(s). If you are going there for summer vacation and live in America, on you'r…e way back to America make sure to change your Kuna(s) into dollars in Croatia and not in America because you cant. 6 kunas is one dollar. (a little more) And lipa(s) are like cents in America. I hope I helped.
