About Parastone

First things first: there are no better Byzantine 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.

Byzantine and Parastone: what a magical combination.

Byzantine, Constantinople (10th century). The Christian Eastern Roman Empire’s culture is called Byzantine in reference to Byzantium, the classical name for Constantinople (contemporary Istanbul). Byzantine culture had its own, unique aesthetics. The painting and sculpture limited itself almost entirely to religious scenes, expressed in a static, almost impersonal manner within strict theological boundaries. Ivory carving developed to great heights after the 8th century. Almost half the icons depict Christ on the cross, usually with Maria and John at its foot. The four drills holes in this icon’s frame indicate that it was later used to decorate a book cover.

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