Wolfkiam, epitomizes the dialogue between old and new by combining traditional designs – inspired by Incan and Mayan cultures – with the advanced technological forms inherent to digitally-produced artworks. The vibrant colors and intricate details of the piece, such as the central lines representing the figure's veins, are integral to the sculpture, both in creating a sense of movement and fluidity, and in reflecting the traditional cultural styles that inspired the work. 3D printing allows the combination of an organic, biomorphic shape with a very technical play of lines and colors, bringing the design to life from screen to sculpture with with unmatched precision and quality.
