About Parastone

First things first: there are no better Art Anatolien 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 Anatolien and Parastone: what a magical combination.

(Anatolia, around 2000 BC) This touching idol was found in Kültepe in central Anatolia, the enormous peninsular that constitutes the Asian part of Turkey. At the close of the early Bronze Age, around 2000 BC, Anatolia became incredibly wealthy thanks to its strategic location between Asia and Europe. The majority of the population lived in fortified settlements. Large Assyrian trading caravans made up of hundreds of donkeys loaded with textiles and tin crossed the area. They paid tax to local princes in exchange for protection and the right to establish trading posts (karums).

As of 2014, I found that amazon now stock many of the Art Anatolien 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 Anatolien 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.
