Different from flat rubbings, high relief rubbings require the craftsman to cut the xuan paper into pieces according to the convex and concave of the sculpture, and then splice hundreds of pieces of paper together to reproduce the artwork.

Such a craft can not only copy unmovable cultural relics in equal size, but can also record cracks and erosion on them, providing correct information for the observation and protection of cultural relics.
