- carvings - Refers to works executed by cutting a figure or design out of a solid material such as stone or wood.

For large and medium-sized three-dimensional works of art, use the broader term "sculpture" or another appropriate term.
- ivory - The modified form of dentin derived from animal teeth. The most common example is from the tusks of mature elephants; similar material is obtained from any tusked or large-toothed mammal such as a walrus or narwhal.
- Native American - Typically reserved to refer narrowly to the cultures of the native peoples of the United States and Canada, excluding the Eskimos and Aleuts. For the indigenous peoples of Canada use the term "First Nations."
