You found a travelling 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 Harbour porpoise:

“The Harbour porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) 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!

Porpoises (Phocoena phocoena) are also called ‘sea pigs’ because of their oily appearance and because they can make a grumbling sound.
The sound that porpoises create during exhalation is described by some as a ‘flop’, by others as a ‘sneeze’.

The porpoise must come up to the water to breathe. When the porpoise hunts, it dives under water for about 4 minutes, where it can reach a depth of 200m. In between, they ‘slowly’ roll through the water surface.

In calm, sunny weather, porpoises sometimes float on the surface for a long time, basking in the sun.

The Harbour porpoise is severly endangered in The Netherlands and Belgium. Via this stone I want to give this beautiful mammal extra attention.”

This stone started travelling on 2019-06-10.

    DThe elow Meadows in this beautiful nature, were infamous in the 16e century. This because of witches caovents that were supposed to be held here. Today the stone is left at the Lagunas de las Canas.
