Subject: Creating authority record for a statue

I am considering creating an authority record for a statue located in South Dakota. I found the RDA-compliant record for the Venus de Milo statue (n  99006708), but rather than just creating a record based on that, I wanted to make sure I’m following the proper rules in RDA (especially Chapter 6?). Does anyone have experience creating authority records of this type? Is there a workflow or cheat sheet for authority records for individual art works?


Thank you.
