This object has the following keywords:
  • engravings - Prints on paper incorporating impressions of a reverse design created on a printing plate, usually copper, into which the design has been incised (engraved) using burins or gravers. Historically, "engravings" has sometimes been incorrectly used to refer to all prints, regardless of the specific technique. For prints made from designs engraved on a flat wooden block, use "wood cuts"; for prints made from a plate that is etched rather than engraved, use "etchings."
  • religious art - Use broadly for art depicting religious subjects or for art used in worship.
  • shepherds - Persons who guard, tend and herd flocks of sheep grazing at large.
  • unfinished - The state of not being finished or completed. Includes the sense of intentionally not being brought to what is usually considered to be a final state of completion.
