I'm not particularly following the PEP stuff, but this tickled me. My grandparents beach house in Australia has a branded sign on the gate. It is an old piece of drift wood.
It has had the branding renewed many times over the years by various people as it fades and weathers, but as far as I know it is the same piece of wood from 40+ years ago. I first branded it with my grandfather when I was about 5. Again when I visited with my wife on honeymoon, and again 18 months ago with my eldest son who was 5 at the time. When my grandfather passed away I was unable to attend his funeral, as we were in England, but each of the grandchildren chose an item to put out at the memorial service and a note explaining the connection with Tom. I chose the sign as was one of the first "projects" I remember doing with anyone.
I'll see if I can dig out a photo.
Last time I did it was with a huge magnifying glass. Previously it was with a hot poker, heated in a wood fire.

I'm thinking that the woodburning of the book probably doesn't qualify on it's own for "- a small bit of art, story or significance," but the descriptions in your thread count for stories and significance.
I just branded my food forest gate - Apricot Gate. Here's a thread describing the significance of the gate and the food forest it leads to: I hereby dub thee Apricot Gate
"Hundreds of years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in or the type of car I drove... But the world may be different because I did something so bafflingly crazy that it becomes a tourist destination"
Here is a picture of the sign in the final location:
I think this coop meets the 'spirit" of this BB even though the location itself is mobile. Naming the coop will allow me to direct people to the correct coop (there are 2 coops on sight and 5 different animal enclosures) and the name is fun!
