Note: Three-dimensional works of art in which images and forms are produced in relief, in intaglio, or in the round. The term refers particularly to art works created by carving or engraving a hard material, by molding or casting a malleable material (which usually then hardens), or by assembling parts to create a three-dimensional object. It is typically used to refer to large or medium-sized objects made of stone, wood, bronze, or another metal. Small objects are typically referred to as "carvings" or another appropriate term. "Sculpture" refers to works that represent tangible beings, objects, or groups of objects, or are abstract works that have defined edges and boundaries and can be measured. As three-dimensional works become more diffused in space or time, or less tangible, use appropriate specific terms, such as "mail art" or "environmental art."

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Kunstwerken waarin beelden en vormen zijn uitgevoerd in reliëf, in intaglio of in rondsculptuur. De term verwijst in het bijzonder naar objecten of groepen objecten die hun tastbaarheid behouden. De term is vooral van toepassing op kunstwerken die worden gemaakt door in een hard materiaal te snijden of te graveren, door een pletbaar materiaal te vormgieten of te modelleren of door delen samen te voegen tot een driedimensionaal object. Meestal heeft de term betrekking op grote of middelgrote objecten van steen, hout, brons of een ander metaal. Kleine objecten worden doorgaans 'beeldsnijwerken' genoemd. Gebruik specifiekere termen voor werken die meer verspreid zijn over ruimte of tijd, of minder tastbaar worden, zoals 'mail art' of 'omgevingskunst'. 
Spanish ..... Úsese para obras de arte en que las imágenes y formas son llevadas a cabo principalmente en tres dimensiones, especialmente aquellas que mantienen la calidad de ser objetos tangibles o grupos de objetos. A medida que la obra se convierte más difusa en el espacio o en el tiempo o menos tangible, use otros términos tales como "arte postal " o "arte ecológico".
