A BIG IDEA IN MINIATURES
Ten years ago the African sculptor and painter Nijel BPG founded Nijart International, a portrait sculpting company in the belief that the cherished and beloved people who inspired and influenced our lives should not be forgotten. Since then, this belief has fueled the artist's vision, and enabled Nijel to create some of the most significant bronze, and clay sculpture of our time.
In April 1994 Nijel decided to launch a campaign he dubbed "art for the masses". "It is a campaign", says Nijel, "to make my art accessible to every man, woman, and child who desires the experience of owning a Nijart". Nijel's art for the masses philosophy finds expression in the most stunning portrait figurines ever produced. These are the Magnificent Miniatures™.
The Magnificent Miniatures™ collection begins with important leaders, sports figures, and entertainers. With their incredibly life-like quality, and fine detail, Nijart's Magnificent Miniatures™ are quickly gaining in popularity among many first time collectors. We hope that you too will soon share the magic of the Magnificent Miniatures™ as they are brought to you exclusively by Nijart International, the leader in fine art heirlooms.
HOW OUR STATUES ARE CREATED
Each statue begins as an original clay statue sculpted by sculptor/artist Nijel. A preliminary mold is made of this statue from which a hydrostone (water mixed with US Gypsum hydrostone powder) copy is cast for further refinement and sculpting. The final statue is then ready for mass production. Each miniature is hand crafted, detailed, and painted to perfection by the artist Nijel and his studio of artisans. Each statue is 6 to 8 inches tall, and weighs 1 to 2 lbs. The statues are finished with true to life flesh tone coloring. Nijart's "Monumental Grey" finishes are highlighted with gold accents are Nijart's fastest selling version.
