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 adopted by Katelijn with the message “coming home”. The stone is painted for the Pyrenean desman:

“The Pyrenean desman (Galemys pyrenaicus) 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!

This group differs from other moles in that they do not live underground, but in water. Pyrenean desmans are only about 11 to 15 centimeters long and weigh 50 to 80 grams. They live in cold, fast-flowing mountain streams in the Pyrenees.
They can close their ears and nostrils with valves because of the water. But also use their striking nose as a snorkel! In addition, they use echolocation.

The Pyrenean desman is vulnerable in France and Spain with a dwindling population. Via this stone I want to give this beautiful mammal extra attention.
It is one of the strangest animals I have painted for my art project.”

This stone started travelling on 2019-04-01.

This art project wants to pleasantly surprise hikers through miniature art. A second goal is to initiate a new form of communication and awareness,through art and social media. The participant and I are looking forward for your story or response on this stone! (possibly with photo)

The next art project, with a route of resting and traveling stones, starts in 2019 of 2020.

    Mijn man en ik hebben eindelijk de vakantie naar Canada
    Gemaakt.
    Deze reis stond al drie jaar gepland, maar vanwege omstandigheden kwam het er niet van.
    De steen hebben we bij het Peyto Lake overgedragen aan een heel aardig echtpaar die hem mee willen nemen naar Colorado.
    Ik heb een foto van de steen genomen bij de Johnston Canion. Dit ligt iets eerder aan de Icefields Parkway tussen Banff en Jasper.
    Ik kan helaas geen exacte locatie opgeven.
    Veel succes met dit project.

    Vriendelijke groeten,
    Joke
