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 large copper:

“The large copper (Lycaena dispar) 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 male fireflies defend a territory of one hundred to four hundred square meters and sometimes larger. Usually they lie in the hottest places. Males use single flowering stalks as the central point in their territory, for example those of big cat tail. Interactions, also with other insects, occur regularly and occasionally there is a territorial battle with a congener.Longer reconnaissance flights alternate with short ones. The males then fly from plant to plant or walk over the leaves. It is assumed that in this way they make scent traces, which are important for reproduction.

The large copper is critically endangered in The Netherlands. Via this stone I want to give this beautiful butterfly extra attention.”

This stone started travelling on 2019-07-04.
