The Cataloging Cultural Objects (CCO) portal seems to be a relevant 
pointer for this use case, http://vraweb.org/ccoweb/cco/index.html.
It contains a list of vocabularies and thesauri together with metadata 
schemas for describing cultural heritage objects. I'm not sure however 
that the current format allows to represent complex relationships in 
your annotations as you would like to put in the requirement [6083].
