    The Struwelpeter is a tree in the Schwanheimer meadows, which gets its funny appearance from the attached eyes.

    F.K. Waechter's object has been in the Schwanheimer Wiesen since June 2006 and shows a polluted willow tree as a Struwwelpeter. The special feature: the eyes start to shine at dusk.

    In 1970 Waechter first drew the "Anti-Truwwelpeter". Its predecessor and thus the very first Struwwelpeter comes from the Frankfurt doctor Heinrich Hoffmann, published as a book in 1845.

    F.K. Waechter has drawn a whole series of objects in trees and donated it to the city of Frankfurt am Main. Little by little, these works of comic art will be implemented along the Green Belt circular hiking trail. All are created in cooperation with the Museum of Comic Art. F.K. Waechter is a representative of the New Frankfurt School.

    This year, the Struwwelpeter was freshly styled. At first I was afraid that he would not recover, but now the hair has regrown.

    When it gets dark, a strange sight presents itself on the Schwanheimer Meadows, which terrifies the unsuspecting: The Struwwelpeter looks at you with shining eyes. It is a pollarded willow tree to which two luminous bodies are attached, which shine like eyes from the face, which is lying in the dark and framed by the thicket of hair. The idea comes from F.W. Guardian.Struwwelpeter - or rather anti-struwwelpeter? The lively, tousled, rebellious exterior of the tree gives cause to think of the 1970 book Waechters, which mocks strict educators and authorities and gathers "cunning stories and gaudy pictures". It is based on the classic by Heinrich Hoffmann and has meanwhile become a classic itself, namely the anti-authoritarian education:
    “So don't be pious and good
    like a tethered sheep
    but like the clever children
    happy and free. It's healthier. "
