The Seal Design Group of an object refers to the general classification of the design on the object. Its Sub-Category Seal Design Sub Group refers to the specific type of the design group. The list below lists the frequency of all the different design groups.

  • Frequency

The base design groups are (with frequency): {{#sask: ?DesignGroup | return=ol | sort=freqasc| addfrequency= | addfrequencypercent=}}

  • Percentage

The specific design groups are (with percentage): {{#sask:  ?DesignGroup | return=ol | sort=freqasc | addfrequencypercent=}}

As can be seen the top level categories need some work to balance the rough number of objects within each. The data below is structured by a Sub-Category for each of the Design Group's and a Sub-Sub-Category for the Design Sub Group. Specific objects can be located in Design Sub Group although synthesis data is largely available in the Design Groups. To briefly outline what each type represents:


Aligned centre

The key factor here is the object's design is focused on the centre of the object.

Chevrons

A variant of Aligned centre where a central cross has chevrons in each quadrant.

Radiating Lines

A variant of Aligned centre where the emphasis is on lines radiating from/to the edge/centre.

Square and Lines

A variant of Aligned centre where the emphasis is on lines radiating from/to the edge/centre.

Animal

An object whose primary motif is a Animal

Circles

Objects with a double circle motif.

Cross-hatching

Displaying a variety of cross-hatching.

Irregular

Presently unique examples.

Linear

Design is focused on a split.

Naturalistic

Where the shape of a theoretical impression is Naturalistic.

Not a Seal

Objects which are not traditional seals but are included within Aktanak for comparative purposes

Stars and Hatches

Interesting design where star shaped crosses are associated with general hatching.

Swirly

Designs which are essentially annoying.
