Grand sculptures are 2x2 sculptures and require 400 materials or 4000 for small volume materials like silver or gold. Although the grand size occupies 2x2 tiles, the beauty of the piece is attributed to one of the four tiles only. This means that for materials with no beauty offset it yields the same overall beauty per tile as four large sculptures, which would also cost the same materials but take more work. However, as the beauty offset from materials like marble and gold only applies once per item, four large sculptures will have slightly higher beauty when using those materials.

Unlike the smaller sculptures, they can sometimes be found in ancient shrines.

Sculptures are pieces of art that (hopefully) add beauty to any room they're in once they are installed. They are one of the most effective ways to improve a room's impressiveness. A finished piece of art gets a quality that affects the beauty and market value.


The artist's skill is a driving factor in the quality of the sculpture. Sculptures can be reinstalled or uninstalled. Sculptures may be deconstructed to salvage 75% of its materials. If a sculpture job is interrupted for any reason the sculptor will drop the piece on the table, and it will be in an unfinished state until the same author finishes it. A sculptor cannot work on another sculptor's piece.

Counter-intuitively, stone sculptures are not made from stone chunks, but from multiple stone blocks at an art bench, requiring an additional step of processing for those.

Types of Sculptures

Sculptures come in three sizes:

  • Small sculptures, which are 1x1 and require 50 materials or 500 small volume materials (silver or gold).
  • Large sculptures, which are 1x1 and require 100 materials or 1000 small volume materials (silver or gold). Large sculptures require 2/3 more work than small sculptures.
  • Grand sculptures, which are 2x2 and require 400 materials or 4000 small volume materials (silver or gold). Although the grand size occupies 2x2 tiles, the beauty of the piece is attributed to one of the four tiles only, yielding the same overall beauty per tile as four large sculptures. Grand sculptures require almost 6x the work of a small sculpture, or 3.5x the work of a large.

On each individual page is a table detailing statistics on sculptures.


The inspect pane indicates the name of the piece's sculptor and how much work is remaining. The stockpile filter includes an entry for unfinished sculptures (under >Items >Unfinished) which allows the player to control where they are stored if keeping them by the table becomes an inconvenience. The piece will be named under a title and although same titles can be used, the storylines will differ; for example, both sculptures in the images below are titled "Blue Forest".

  • Styles

    Ideoligions allow the selection of styles which then change the texture of the certain items and buildings when constructed by the colony. These style variants can be crafted if the colony has the selected style.
