You found a traveling stone!

Part of an inspiring art project with traveling miniatures and art on the walking trails.

These unique painted stones travel around the world. Every traveling stone spreads its own story of message of one of the participants of this art project. Here you find info about this project.
Below the story of this stone, location journey and meetings with hikers.

The miniature, location and message.





This stone is dedicated to the story of the European wildcat:

“The European wildcat (Felis silvestris silvestris) is part of a series traveling miniature stones depicting endangered or vulnerable animals in Europe. I want to bring attention to these special animals through this art project.
Spread the word and move the stone!

The European wild cat (Felis silvestris silvestris) looks like a tabby house cat, but is heavier built. He also has a longer coat, plump, thick legs with sharp nails and a massive broad snout with long whiskers.
The wild cat is very shy. He lives solitary or in a couple. The cat usually stays true to one partner but spends a lot of time alone.

The wild cat is difficult to observe. Traces can not be distinguished with certainty from those of the domestic cat.
An area inventory can be done with photo traps (automatic cameras that respond to movement). In this way, research was done on the occurrence of the wild cat in the German Eiffel and in 2006 in the most South-Eastern point of the Netherlands. In one of the ninety places where a photo trap was installed in the woods, a wild cat turned up.

The European wildcat is was extinct in The Netherlands and Belgium. However, new the animals have been sighted recently in these countries. Via this stone I want to give this beautiful mammal extra attention.”

This stone started travelling on 2019-06-07.
