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 grey-headed woodpecker:

“The grey-headed woodpecker (Picus canus) 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!

This bird is 27 to 30 cm, on average smaller than the green woodpecker with which it is easy to confuse. The gray-headed woodpecker has a gray head and the male has a modest amount of red on the crown, the female has no red. While the green woodpeckers have a completely red crown. The gray-headed woodpecker makes more noise than the green variety, it rattles more often.

Their food consists mainly of ants and ant eggs. The bird is very resistant to severe winters.

The grey-headed woodpecker is sometimes sighted in The Netherlands as a migratory bird and sometimes as breeding bird in Belgium. Via this stone I want to give this beautiful bird extra attention.”

This stone started travelling on 2019-05-10.
