About Parastone

First things first: there are no better Art Amériques sculptures/figures than these Parastone figures anywhere. The attention to detail & the 3d effect breathes new life in the work of the masters.

Parastone was originally part of the famous Borzo art dealership which was founded in 1880 and it primarily specialised in restoring religious art. When, alongside the latter activity, an increasing number of sculptures were produced after own designs, it was decided – in 1963 – to found Parastone as an independent company.

For over 50 years now, Parastone has successfully designed decorative sculptures, partly of timeless classic beauty, partly aligned with current trends. The museum images entitled Mouseion constitute an important part of the collection. Alongside exact copies of important works of art, Mouseion also consists of three-dimensional interpretations of paintings and sketches by many artists ranging from Jheronimus Bosch to Salvador Dali.

Parastone is located in ’s-Hertogenbosch, a historic city in the Netherlands and the birthplace of famous Medieval painter Jheronimus Bosch.

Art Amériques and Parastone: what a magical combination.

The oldest known culture in the West of Mexico is the Cupícuaro (named after the archaeological site in the Lerma basin). Only a few ruins and Stone utensils remained from this society. The many sculls and beheaded skeletons tell us that it wasn’t a very peaceful society. However, the ceramic tradition of the Chupícuaro is one of the best known of Central America. Most of the famous three-coloured pottery is found in graves. It consists of geometrically decorated vases and vessels in all forms, but also of animal and human figurines that are decorated in a similar way. Normally, female figurines are usually extremely broad-hipped, probably as a symbol for fertility. We know from related cultures that they are also associated with the fertility of the earth and the changing of the seasons.

As of 2014, I found that amazon now stock many of the Art Amériques Parastone sculptures. As it is impossible to compete with their buying power you may well find the sculpture cheaper there. I have put links to their US site below which will take you to their Art Amériques sculpture pages.

If I can ever compete with their prices then I will stock them again as I do love these sculptures and they deserve to be owned by as many people as possible. I also miss those conversations with fellow Parastone admirers who are adding a sculpture or starting a collection. For now it's enough to present them as beautifully as I possibly can or am able to do.
