My reply would be: suppose you can. So what? Ie what significance 
would you attribute to the ability to describe such a structure in 


(PS. BTW, it depends on what you mean by 'describe', by the way. If 
you mean, can you make an RDF graph that is isomorphic, then of 
course you can if the interpretation is finite, and not if it is not. 
If you mean, can you write some RDF so that SOME interpretation of it 
is isomorphic, the answer is yes, trivially; if you mean, write some 
RDF so that ALL interpretations are isomorphic, the answer is no. If 
you mean, so that all interpretations in some class of 
interpretations are isomorphic, (eg all 'minimal' interpretations in 
some sense), then say what class you have in mind. )
