This terms art unit is called Objects and their meanings.

Still life artists need to be very particular with the objects they choose to paint. They must ensure the objects look like they were meant to be together, so they must arrange them perfectly.

Look at the still life paintings on the slides and ask which objects the artist has used for the subject of their painting.
