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."

  • men - Refers to male human beings from young adulthood through old age.
  • prisoners - Persons involuntarily confined in prison or kept in custody. Use "convicts" for those serving a prison sentence following conviction for a criminal offense. Use "inmates" for those confined, voluntarily or involuntarily, to an institutional facility.
  • senators - Members of a governing legislative body called a Senate, in ancient Rome and other states in antiquity, in some cities of Europe from Medieval to modern times, and in some modern nations such as the United States, Canada, France, and Italy.
