I would break the conflict preemptively. Otherwise, authorized access points for other works could get controlled/linked to the wrong authority record. We are allowed to break conflicts with other works found in OCLC even though there is no conflict in the authority file.

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 18.104.22.168.1 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.

Subject: [PCCLIST] NACO: Works of art, Individual
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 OneàNAF). The subject is “Der Löwenmensch,” a prehistoric figurine made of mammoth ivory discovered in a Paleolithic cave near Ulm, Germany.
1) Since the Germans named it as Der Löwenmensch, 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?
