Grant me the power of creating an imaginary copy of an item that existed in the past.

What would be the best way to translate the following sentence?
Does one use the genitive case when describing that a noun is a representation of another noun?

Grant me the power of creating an imaginary copy of an item that existed in the past.
Da mihi potestatem creandi effigiem imaginariam

Yes, you'd use the genitive. I'd say something like:

Da mihi potestatem faciendi exemplaris imaginarii rei alicuius quae exstitit olim.
