2. Arrangement: The objects in a still life painting are often arranged in a specific way to create a composition. The arrangement can convey a mood or meaning.

3. Lighting: Still life paintings often feature dramatic lighting to create an atmosphere or to highlight certain objects.

4. Realism: Still life paintings often strive for a high degree of realism, with detailed renderings of objects and textures.

5. Symbolism: Still life paintings may include symbolic objects that represent a specific theme or message.

Still life itself is always attractive - because everyone likes to look at fresh flowers and ripe fruit. But sometimes the authors supplement them with seemingly extraneous elements - books, musical instruments, etc., this gives to the composition an extra charm, makes us think about some hidden meaning and, finally, makes the picture memorable.
