It's about three-fifths as heavy as a Gallon of Paint
It's about three-fifths as heavy as a Cat
In other words, 2,900 grams is 0.6 times the weight of a Cat, and the weight of a Cat is 2 times that amount.(Felis catus) (Domestic; healthy weight)
The average domestic cat should weigh about 5,000 grams. Cats are known for their righting reflex, which allows them to land on their feet and survive falls from heights of 1 m up to about 21 m.
It's about two times as heavy as a Human Brain
In other words, 2,900 grams is 2.15 times the weight of a Human Brain, and the weight of a Human Brain is 0.465 times that amount.(adult)

It's about two-fifths as heavy as a Bowling Ball
In other words, 2,900 grams is 0.42622704 times the weight of a Bowling Ball, and the weight of a Bowling Ball is 2.34616743 times that amount.(most common selection among male bowlers)
With an allowable range of 4,989.516070 grams, the most-preferred bowling ball weight among adult, male bowlers is 6,803.885550 grams. Because regulation balls measure the same diameter irrespective of their weight, ball density varies by size and balls weighing less than about 5,000 grams will float in water.
It's about three times as heavy as a liter of Water
In other words, 2,900 grams is 2.899919 times the weight of a liter of Water, and the weight of a liter of Water is 0.3448372 times that amount.(fresh; 4° C / 39.2° F; maximum density)
Contrary to popular belief, 1 liter (0.0.264172052358148 gal) of water at 4° C / 39.2° F (its point of maximum density) weighs 1,000.028 grams rather than 1 kg exactly. The total volume of water on the planet Earth is about 13,590,000,000,000,000,000 (13.59 quntillion) L (3,590,000,000,000,000,000 gallons).
