"Dancing Stones" Sculpture by Gérard Kuijpers
You can be the new owner of this striking sculpture "The Dancing Stones", crafted by renowned artist Gérard Kuijpers.
"The Dancing Stones" are the result of a laborious purification process. Steel and stone stripped down to their essence.
With the steel as strong as ever, the stone radiates its heaviness. This artwork showcases the stone's potential for movement, even in complete rest.
"Dancing Stones" features a stone block of Belgium black marble (Noir de Mazy) finely balanced on a steel point, which moves without friction at the touch of a finger or with a gentle breeze.

As you may have noticed, the world of disability and mobility is developing fast, and mentalities about the necessity to get a maximum of accessible places have been evolving.
It is increasingly common to talk about the “Disability market” because the tourism sector is aware that there is a real opportunity to attract and retain new customers, who were often cast aside in the past. Unfortunately, a large amount of persons with reduced mobility still do not travel and are often reluctant to move into unfamiliar surroundings.
80% of people do not travel because they do not get responses to their requests, and the necessary information in order to prepare their trip in the best possible way. The Wheeling Around the World Foundation’s aim is to break down the barriers in order to enable everyone to travel in the best possible conditions, and to fulfill their dreams.
The Wheeling Around the World Foundation also intends to be the spokesperson of disability and mobility, in order to heighten the awareness of institutions and the tourism industry about the importance of accessibility for everyone.
