About Parastone

First things first: there are no better Grünewald sculptures/figures than these Parastone figures anywhere. The attention to detail & the 3d effect breathes new life in the work of the masters, especially, for me, the incomparable Grünewald. Some of them, especially the colours and details, are astonishing.

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. Grünewald is somewhere in the middle of those two masters.

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

Grünewald and Parastone: what a magical combination.

Winged Beast

Sculpture

Superb. Sculpture originally depicted in the Temptation of St. Anthony, in the right-hand panel of the Isenheim Altarpiece.

Medium: Collectible quality resin
Details: Hand-painted color details, matte and glossy finish
Dimensions: 5 in. x 4 in. x 4 in.
Condition: New in box
Date of Creation: 1990-Now
Origin: Europe
Manufactured by: Parastone Mouseion

Included: Full color card with image of original artwork. Description card about artist and artwork. Both cards are in four languages.

Beautifully rendered and constructed of fine collectible quality resin.

The Isenheim Altarpiece is a shrine with two sets of folding wings and three views originally executed for the hospital chapel of Saint Anthony's Monastery in Isenheim in Alsace and now at the Unterlinden Museum in Colmar, a nearby town. The first, with the wings closed, is a Crucifixion showing a harrowingly detailed, twisted, and bloody figure of Christ on the cross in the center flanked, on the left, by the mourning Madonna being comforted by John the Apostle, and Mary Magdelene kneeling with hands clasped in prayer, and, on the right, by a standing John the Baptist pointing to the dying Savior. At the feet of the Baptist is a lamb holding a cross, symbol of the Lamb of God slaughtered for man's sins (see original picture).

As of 2014, I found that amazon now stock many of the Grünewald 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 both their US and UK sites below which will take you to their Grünewald 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 Grünewald/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.

Try: amazon.com (direct link). Catch them while you can.
