About Parastone

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

    Between 3200 and 2000 B.C. a highly developed culture flourished on the Cyclades—archipelago in the Aegean Sea. There were fortified, heavily populated settlements, prosperous through sea trade. The art of sculpting was one of the most important aspects of this early culture. The sculptures were mostly executed in beautiful white marble that was amply available on the islands. The Cycladic art of sculpting is classified in three types, based on chronology and style. The Spedos-type, named after a burial site on the island of Naxos, is the one most well known. Little is known about the exact meaning of the female figurines. Some decrations seem to indicate an association with motherhood and fertility. Many of the figurines are found on burial sites which leads to the assummption that they were used during funeral ceremonies. Famous European artists like Hepworth, Moore, Picasso and Modigliani have been inspired by this completely unique style.

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