I think now i could have taken two pictures that shows way more than the others (color of wood). The wood like i said is exotic and really heavy.

I hope that showing you minute details on bed clear you up. At the first view the front pannels look equal, but when compared louds of diferences are seen. All the pannels are full of Fissures are crackles on carvings. The back part of the pannels is where we can see the full degradation. All the bed is hand carved. The color on pictures is not totally accurate.

Im sorry for the bad photos. as i dont have a nikon!!! I´m a photo of a normal nokia n97 phone. The woods that you said are too light to be the color of my bed, and non exotic, and also too light in weight, cause my bed is massive in weight. All the pannels and bed parts are dismounted. I have taken the other photos with flash, now i´m taking with louds of day light, but still stays much lighter on photos. Can´t take the full redish of the wood.

On the back of the pannels, there are parts in raw. Those parts have like stripes (black, rose, yellow and brown) and many of them have loads of black resin stripes (it fells rought with finger touch). It isn´t with all sure fir or pine i have been comparing with those lively, but it´s strange that it isn´t all rose or all black. I have comparing with several hard woods that i have, non match.
Thank you on advance.
