Architectural Bas Relief for Church Projects

Many of the earliest architectural bas relief sculptures were made as a way to celebrate the lives of important religious events and figures, so it shouldn't be any surprise that spectacular examples of architectural bas relief still appear in many places of worship. Architectural bas relief on altars, ceilings, columns, and panels in churches around the world celebrate the lives of saints, depict important events described in the Bible, and show reverence and worship. Saint Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel contain some of the more spectacular examples of architectural bas relief, but it can also be observed in many lesser-known churches as well. Many newer churches also incorporate architectural bas relief, and the development of new materials like GFRP that can replicate the look of precious metals and marble means that beautiful designs celebrating the faith of worshippers are now available at a fraction of the cost.
