See Help:Modelling/Home for notation, intended audience.

The following subsections cover various domains related to the arts. The intent here is:

  • to provide examples of modeling items in these various domains.
  • to indicate where to find further discussion of modeling items in these domains.

Arts edit

Visual arts edit

See Wikidata:WikiProject Visual arts, especially Wikidata:WikiProject Visual arts/Item structure.

Books edit

See Wikidata:WikiProject Books.

Fiction edit

see Wikidata:WikiProject_Fictional_universes and Wikidata:WikiProject_Narration

Stories edit

So for, example, we might have:

The Perrault work makes the folk tale manifest, by writing down a fixed version.
The Disney film is based on the Perrault work.

Fictional characters edit

If a fictional character is human, it should be an instance of fictional human (Q15632617). If it is not human, but has most characteristics of personhood, it is an instance of fictional character (Q95074). There are also many choices like fictional horse (Q2962925) and the more general fictional equine (Q27303980); fictional dog (Q15720625) and the more general fictional Canis (Q27304428); the still more general fictional animal character (Q3542731) (also, for a species rather than an individual, fictional species of animal (Q15702752)); and the even more general fictional entity (Q14897293).


So for, example, we might have:

The Perrault work makes the folk tale manifest, by writing down a fixed version.
The Disney film is based on the Perrault work.
The character Cinderella is present in the tale Cinderella.
The Disney character Cinderella is present in the film Cinderella.
The Disney character is said to be the same as the traditional character, but that identity is subject to dispute.

Music edit

See Wikidata:WikiProject Music.

Movies and video fictions edit

For movies and movie series, as well as television and other video serials, episodes, and one-offs, as well as seasons of a television show, etc., see Wikidata:WikiProject Movies, especially Wikidata:WikiProject Movies/Properties.

However, it appears this last may be considered a controversial approach. While there is no definitive guidance, some participants would prefer to model the original production as a separate thing from the ballet as such, and associate the cast members only with that particular production.
