About "Nimba Head" artclone

The original African wooden mask of this clone comes from the Atlantic coast of Equatorial Guinea where the Baga populations, with ancient agricultural traditions, used these imposing sculpted masks for their propitiation rites.

The elegantly curving outlines and imposing bulk of this artclone unite in a spiritual yet terrestrial composition, with light, recurrent decorations carved on the surfaces and surprisingly forceful anatomical features, such as the nose and eyes. These strong contrasts combined in such a mythical figure would be suitable for Minimalist settings or large Industrial style spaces.

Even though the original mask is sculpted in brown wood, this clone could be produced in any colour since its expressive force lies in the distinctiveness of its contours.

A portion of the profits of this artclone will be donated to the Solar Electric Light Fund, a non profit organization which works to bring electricity to rural African villages.

the artclone process

Digitization

Museums and Private Collections partner with Artficial to preserve their sculptural masterpieces in digital format. We employ state-of-the-art scanning techniques to capture every detail of the original sculpture.

Archival

The digital file is permanently stored in the Artvault, our secure and robust database which serves as a repository for the scans of the world's sculptural masterpieces. The Artvault safeguards the precious file and metadata, ensuring the longevity and accessibility of these invaluable cultural artifacts.

Sustainable Production

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.

Preservation

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.

frequently asked questions

What are artclones made of?

Our artclones are made of a plant-based filament. This cutting-edge, durable material is sourced from renewable plant-based resources and has a carbon footprint that is remarkably lower, by 75 percent, than traditional plastics, allowing us to further reduce our environmental impact.

Artclones are plant-based, does it mean they degrade over time?

No. Time and weather do not degrade our artclones (except of course for acid rain and other chemically toxic environments). Artclones may fully degrade in compost facilities where specific heat, water, oxygen conditions are applied.

Can I display my artclone outdoors?

Yes, Artficial artclones are weather proof.
