Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • 21st century
  • carts - Strong vehicles, having two or sometimes three wheels and without springs. Usually animal-drawn and built for utility purposes, used in farming operations, and for carrying heavy goods. Some varieties were designed as sporting vehicles or for personal transportation. For utility vehicles having four wheels, use "wagons."
  • crayons - A generic term for any drawing material made in stick form. Common examples are pigments in a wax binder, available in stick form.
  • horse-drawn vehicles - Land vehicles pulled by horses.
  • horses - Frameworks functioning as temporary supports.
  • houses - Individual dwellings designed to be occupied by a single tenant or family. May also refer to a building for human occupation, for some purpose other than that of an ordinary dwelling; with this usage, "house" is generally prefaced (e.g., "cowhouse," "almshouse").
  • pastels - Colored crayons or chalk-like sticks that consist of finely ground pigments mixed with a small amount of a water-based binder, such as gum tragacanth or, from the mid-20th century, methyl cellulose. Used in drawing. Many pastels contain pure pigments producing intense, deep colors; lighter colors are diluted with an inert filler (chalk, gypsum, talc, kaolin, etc.). Pastels produce a powdery, easily smudged drawing.
  • pastels - Works of art, typically on a paper or vellum support, to which designs are applied using crayons made of ground pigment held together with a binder, typically oil or water and gum. Works in this medium are sometimes classified as drawings, and sometimes as paintings, typically based on the local curatorial department responsible for the work or on the material of the support (pastels on paper may be classified as drawings, while pastels on vellum may be classified as paintings).
  • South African - Style and culture of the people of South Africa.
