Got it. Thanks John!


There are quite a few “Lion man” titles in the OCLC (for books, films, TV series, etc.), but none is established in NAF.  So, I could just establish it in English as:


130    0 Lion man


I have been wondering, however, if we could set it up with a qualifier in this case, in order to prevent it from being mistaken or misused for any of those existing works bearing the same title?


130    0 Lion man (Prehistoric figurine)


BTW,  does anybody know what to put in 046 for this art object which was created nearly 40,000 years ago?

See LC-PCC PS for for named individual works of art.  It looks like you would use an English title. No qualifier would be necessary unless there was a conflict.

Collective wisdom needed!


I am trying to construct a subject heading that I thought would fall into the category of named art objects (SHM H405, “Works of art, Individual”, Group OneÓNAF). The subject is “Der L÷wenmensch,” a prehistoric figurine made of mammoth ivory discovered in a Paleolithic cave near Ulm, Germany.


1) Since the Germans named it as Der L÷wenmensch, would it be appropriate to keep it that way, or use the commonly known English term the “Lion Man”?


2) The MARC tag for the entity would have to be 130, would it not?


130    L÷wenmensch (Prehistoric figurine)
