Subject: [Crm-sig] evote: Issue 535 example of Pxxx represents instance of type

Dear all,

According to the decision for issue 535 in the 50th CIDOC CRM SIG meeting, the first example of Pxx represents instance of type should be reformulated in order to capture the fact that the thing represented is an unnamed instance of a particular type --which means that the representation illustrates the characteristics of one particular individual, rather than features normally associated with a specific type of thing.

The vote is to decide on whether to accept the example, following Martin's reformulation.


The top right image on page 87 in the book 'Pharaoh's Birds' by John Miles (E36) represents instance of type hoopoe (Upupa epops) (E55).
[This image is a reproduction of a photograph. The same book shows at the top of page 35 an image representing an unnamed ancient Egyptian relief depicting a hoopoe and other 'Birds of the Marshes'. In contrast to the photograph, the latter image of the ancient Egyptian depiction shows intentionally typical rather than individual characteristics of the respective species, and therefore should be associated with the property P138 represents with the species name hoopoe (Upupa epops)]. (Miles, 1998)

The possible votes are:

* Yes = accept/agree
* No = do not accept/agree
* Other = With other you can either introduce a caveat (e.g.: 'Yes,
but there is a typo on word x, fix it.') or you can write VETO, if you wish to stop the proposal, in which case you should also write a justification and reformulate the issue (e.g.: 'VETO, this change is unacceptable because it violates the following principle...')

Please send your e-votes by the 18th of July.

All the best,
