Are these called plates or tags? That depends on where you live. Once when I was on a session in Stillwater, Oklahoma, I had a comical moment with a local fellow over what he called tags and what I called plates.
We had a good laugh and learned something interesting about each other.
This collection of metal on the wall of a barn outside of Holley, New York has a different descriptor.
It’s called art.
Another debate could be had as to whether it’s modern, primitive, or pop.
Call it whatever you want and enjoy the display.
