  • 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.

  • 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." For the broader concept of the cultures of any native peoples of Central America, South America, North America, or the West Indies who are considered to belong to the Mongoloid division of the human species, use "Amerindian (culture)."
