If you cut down a tree and come across a strong red colour, the association with legendary tree spirits can be awakened. The colour is the result of a process by which coloured water is added to a living tree. The tree's vascular bundles distribute the liquid and dye to the tips of the leaves. This process was also used in Erlenfurt in the Hafenlohr valley around 1950. The treated wood was mainly processed by the Gegenwart sawmill in Lohr a. Main.
The strikingly coloured, grained wooden objects blend "enchantingly" into the historic parlour in the Fränkisches Freilandmuseum Fladungen (Franconian Open Air Museum Fladungen).
