Record Type: concept
commessi (visual works) (opus sectile (visual works), <visual works by material or technique>, ... Visual and Verbal Communication (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Distinctive visual works composed of individually shaped stones of varying colors used to make a composition. The works may be low-relief or flat. An example is as used for a pendant or gem, where the commesso work is often coupled with enamel, gold, and gems. Although usage may overlap, for larger works, such as table tops, using a similar technique, use "pietra dura (visual works)." For works utilizing differently colored layers of a single material to create the design, use "cameos."
