About "Genius of Palermo" artclone

The original sculpture of this artclone depicts the "Genius of Palermo”, an emblematic personification of the city of Palermo, Sicily. Genius loci, Latin for "the protective spirit of a place," is a concept from Roman religion, and many Italian cities have adopted such figures as part of their cultural and historical identity. In Palermo, the Genius is traditionally depicted as an ancient king or deity who symbolizes the essence and prosperity of the city.

The bust portrays an elderly male figure with a stately appearance, characterized by a regal crown. The posture is upright, the head is slightly tilted, the beard in the sculpture flows dramatically from left to right, giving the impression of being tousled by a strong breeze. This dynamic element communicates a sense of timeless vigilance and dynamism of the Genius of Palermo.

Representing the protective spirit of Palermo, this bust carries historical and cultural narratives that enrich the space it occupies.

With the digitalclone securely in place, we proceed to the production stage. Using our advanced 3D printing technology, we craft licensed artclones that replicate the original sculptures with exceptional accuracy using our durable plant-based filament. This made-to-order solution prevents waste and delivers the finished artclone with low turnaround times.


As a result of this patented process, the owner of the licensed artwork receives royalty payments from Artficial with each sale. This arrangement preserves and promotes the world's sculptural masterpieces and cultural heritage.
