Issue 535: Pxxx represents instance of type (examples)

Starting Date: 
Working Group: 

In the 49th CIDOC CRM and 42nd FRBR CRM sig meeting (virtual), upon resolving issue 476, the sig decided to start a new issue on the examples of the newly added property. 

Guidelines for the examples:

  • It must be made clear in the examples that there was a model object represented by the particular E36 Visual Item, and that it served as a type (remains unidentified). For an example instantiating the property represents instance of type woman (E55), there must have been a very specific woman that the statue is shaped to look like. 
  • Distinguish btw representing an unknown particular and representing a concept. The property should only be used when one wants to document that an instance of E36 Visual Item represents an unknown particular of a given type. More examples are needed to make that crystal clear. 
  • The examples should mainly involve photographs. That a photo represents an instance of owl, means that the identity of the particular bird is unknown. But there must have been a photographed object of type owl.
