Fridge Magnet Souvenir with Roman Forum Bas-Relief
This acrylic finish fridge magnet shows just one of the many beautiful examples of bas-relief stone structures that the Roman architecture is famous for. In fact, Bas-Relief is one of the most important forms of Roman stone sculptures that exist today. As shown on the fridge magnet souvenir, it is not a three dimensional stone sculpture, rather it is carved into a slab of stone or marble. The technique used by the Roman creators has allowed many intricate details to be included on the Roman Forum Bas-Relief. The quality of the fridge magnet is such that the entire story that the creator has tried to depict can be understood and related.
Significance of Roman Bas-Relief Structures
If the creator decides to make the sculpture out of bronze, it will be first modeled and then poured as a sheet and then attached as a wall. Interestingly, such stone structures resemble newspaper stories or comic books, which is why Roman Bas-Reliefs are the perfect structures for storytelling especially for telling the stories of battles and historical events.
Subject of Bas-Relief Sculptures
As depicted on this fridge magnet, the Roman Empire liked to portray violent as well as explicit scenes of war and gladiatorial fights. Many other subjects included religion and Christianity as well as political issues; many Roman emperors preferred to have their Bas-Relief depictions in a God-like manner. Even though most of the creators of such beautiful artistry remained nameless, souvenirs like this fridge magnet are an almost perfect ode to their hard work, imagination, technique, and talent. This is why all visitors to the Roman Forum Bas-Relief always return home with memorabilia of such structures.
