1. a seal, gem, etc., ornamented with a sunken or incised design, as opposed to a design in relief.
2. the art or process of incised carving
3. a design, figure, or ornamentation carved, engraved, or etched into the surface of the material used
4. any of various printing techniques using an etched or engraved plate. The whole plate is smeared with ink, the surface wiped clean, and the ink in the recesses then transferred to the paper or other material
5. an incised die used to make a design in relief

Everything is about leading
Visitors away from truth
Faux intaglio is a painting
Marbles are simple casts

The Roman villa a Twenties’ folly
