We formulate a deformable template model for objects with an efficient mecha-
nism for computation and parameter estimation. The data consists of binary oriented
edge features, robust to photometric variation and small local deformations. The tem-
plate is defined in terms of probability arrays for each edge type. A primary contri-
bution of this paper is the definition of the instantiation of an object in terms of shifts
of a moderate number local submodels - parts - which are subsequently recombined
using a patchwork operation, to define a coherent statistical model of the data. Ob-
