From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Alto-rilievo \Al"to-ri*lie*vo\, n.; pl. Alto-rilievos. [It.]
     (Sculp.)
     High relief; sculptured work in which the figures project
     more than half their thickness; as, this figure is an
     alto-rilievo or in alto-rilievo.
     [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: When the figure stands only half out, it is called
           mezzo-rilievo, demi-rilievo, or medium relief; when its
           projection is less than one half, basso-rilievo,
           bas-relief, or low relief.
           [1913 Webster] altostratus
