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 pearly heath:

“The pearly heath (Coenonympha Arcania) is part of a series travelling 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 pearly heath can be found in grasslands and along forest edges. The butterfly has a preference for sheep grass.
The drawing on the wings can vary, sometimes dots may be missing.

The scientific name Coenonympha arcania comes from Arcania, one of the 50 daughters of King Danaos of Libya. She and her 49 sisters were forced to marry one of the 50 sons of Aegyptos (gave the name Egypt). She killed her husband on the orders of her father. Like 48 of her sisters during the wedding night. Only one of her sisters refused to kill her husband. Both lived happily ever after.

The pearly heath is a rare butterfly species. It’s extinct in The Netherlands, critically endangered in Belgium and appears in France. Via this stone I want to give this beautiful butterfly extra attention.”

This stone started travelling on 2019-06-01.

    Robert from Philadephia (USA) left this stone at Cruz de Ferro at sunrise. He hopes that someone else will find it.

    Hi Andrea. I found the stone at the Cruz de ferro and travelled with it to Santiago. It has now moved to the mid north coast of NSW Australia. I will ensure it continues its journey onwards.
