"""4. Declaring the Shapes Graph

A data graph MAY link to one or more shapes graphs via the property sh:shapesGraph. The subject of this predicate must be the graph resource, i.e. the name of the data graph in the dataset. The objects of this predicate must be IRI nodes, pointing at a named graph in the dataset. Tools may use this information to determine which shapes graph to use for validation. If present, tools SHOULD transitively follow any links from the shapes graph via the predicate owl:imports to other graphs and use the resulting union graph as parameter to the validation process."""

This assumes that the data graph is in an RDF dataset.  SHACL validation should work on data graphs that are not in an RDF dataset.
