Number 53


My name is Barbara, I’m 51 years of age and live in the northern suburb of Mullaloo in Perth.  Last weekend, we travelled to Kalgoorlie for the annual Kalgoorlie Cup.  During those few days in Kalgoorlie, we caught up with our friends who had recently moved to Kambalda West.  As it was our first trip to the area, they took us to the Red Hill Lookout early on Saturday morning, 22 September 2012.  There, sitting on a table I found Artwork Number 53 and what a wonderful surprise it was.   What a great idea!  I am quite excited to be part of the whole experience.  I would love to follow the travels of this Artwork to see where it ends up ...

Best wishes


Number 37

Well hello Ravensthorpe High School art students!

I have found the piece of artwork titled Artwork #37! He was a delightful little lizard! I have named him Lou, because well, I did find him in the Lou! I hope that is ok! Let me tell you a little bit about myself and my adventure with Lou.

My name is Lexie. I am 23 years old and I am currently visiting Australia from the United States of America! I am here with my mother and we are visiting my mom's best friend, aka my Aunty Karen. When I found Lou, I had been on a two week road trip with my mother and aunty! My day was terrible, but when I went into the gas station, there was this miraculous lizard! I was so overwhelmed at finding him, that I got very teary eyed. I think this program that you guys are doing is wonderful! I took Lou with me from Raventhorpe to Albany, Denmark, and Peaceful Bay. Along the way he got to see Whale World, Elephant Rocks, and he even got to go to the Tree Top walk! That is where I said goodbye to him and left him with a wonderful note! I have taken pictures to show you guys where he has been! Again, I hope it was ok that I named him. Thank you so much for letting me be apart of this journey! I have one month left to be here in Australia, I can only hope that someone has as much fun with him as I have!


Thanks Lexie, our sculptures are actually made by the Primary school students, so ages from 5 to 13.

Number 53

Found by a tour bus company at the toilet drop station for caravans & buses in Ravensthorpe.  The bus is from Sydney, driver is from Melb & the tour guide is from Beaconsfield Tasmania. The 41 passengers on board come from England, Germany, NZ, Tas, Vic, NSW,Qld & WA. This is a 15 day tour covering over 5000 kms.

We found number 53 when we were emptying our toilet!! Exciting eh!

We intend to take it to the Silver Lake in Kambalda on route to Kalgoorlie.

Good luck number 53, we hope you enjoy your journey .

Hi There, 

We found this at our front door in Alstonville NSW!

We have had it on the table and forgot all about it and needed to send email to say we got it. 

Will pass it on, hope all goes well!

Number 20 finally leaves Leinster

Hi to all concerned regarding foundart

My wife and I were visiting our son in Leinster and came across artwork no. 20 in the Leinster Caravan Park. The tag was the part that attracted my attention and when I picked it up it was in a good and clean condition.

Our son works for BHP and we are retired from the workforce.

We are now back in Perth and intend to place the piece of art in a strategic place shortly.

Our names are John & Kathy and we reside in a rural area about 35 kms south of Perth in a place called Wungong.

Thank you and good luck in tracking all your travelling artworks.


Kind Regards

John & Kathy

So could end up anywhere.

Number 40 Buzzes Around


Hi my name is Joan and I live on a farm at Pingaring W.A.  I went out to do some gardening today and on the way I found this beautiful bee on the table on my back patio.  Don’t know how it got there but it must have flown a long way.  I will leave it there for a few days and then I’m sure it will fly on to another destination where someone else will find it.

                                                                                                               Safe travelling beautiful  BEE.!!!!!

Dear Ravensthorpe District High School.
I have found art number 41 in an unusual place. I came across you on the school grounds as I was going to collect the football that we were playing with.
