- Animalia - Kingdom containing multicellular organisms having cells bound by a plasma membrane and organized into tissue and specialized tissue systems that permit them to either move about in search of food or to draw food toward themselves. Unable to make their own food within themselves, as photosynthetic plants do, they rely on consuming preformed food. They possess a nervous system with sensory and motor nerves, enabling them to receive environmental stimuli and to respond with specialized movements.
- geese - General term referring to members of several species of large web-footed birds in different genera, especially the genera Anser and Branta, but also including a number of waterfowl of gooselike build that live in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres and belong to other groups. Geese have in common that they are larger than ducks and smaller than swans; they differ from ducks in having longer necks and legs that are set more forward.
- inscriptions - Words, texts, lettering, or symbols marked on a work, including texts, legends, documentation notes, or commemoration. For standardized symbols or notations on objects that convey official information, use "marks (symbols)."

- paint - Any dispersion of pigment in a liquid binder. Paint is applied with a brush, roller, sprayer, or by dipping and dries to form a decorative or protective film.
