- Articulated: Parts are attached with springs and/or hinges to create movement by placing pressure on them, however without pressure or changing the item position they will remain in the position displayed. Movement is usually limited to up and down or side to side movement.
- CLOISONNE: Ancient Chinese art form of decorating objects (usually glass or enameled metal) by creating compartments separated by lines of soldered filaments (usually copper wire) to create wonderful artwork.
- BENDING POST: Gently bend the post on the back to obtain the desired position when hanging. (Note: Harsh or frequent bending may damage the post)
