This sculpture has a plate accompanying it giving a description of the subject. The title is "Statue of Pan", and then it goes on to describe a woodland deity.
What would you call this plate? Would you call it a plaque? That's my first guess, but I think it might be wrong, as the writing is not engraved but rather printed, it would seem.
So I would be curious to know first of all whether plaque is an appropriate word to describe this plate and second of all what would be the best word for it?
To state some basic research, I looked up plaque on Merriam Webster's online dictionary and found this definition for English Language learners, which might supply a case for using it here.
a flat, thin piece of metal or wood with writing on it that is used especially as a reminder of something (such as a historic event or an achievement)
Another definition, higher up on the page, i.e. 1c, gives a description of plaque that implies an inscription is necessary.
a commemorative or identifying inscribed tablet
But it just occurred to me that print is a form of inscription, even though it is not a form of engraving. So perhaps this too supports the usage.
Without further ado, here is the sculpture.
