Five vegetable dyes is a piece that decomposes the image of a mineral into the colors that make it up. Each color corresponds to a dye extracted from a plant: Chilca – light blue, Andanga – brown, Qalwinchu – yellow. Raíz – pink, Barba de piedra – terracota. The practice of dyeing with plants has been maintained in many communities in Peru.

Five vegetable dyes is part of the ‘Unweaving the Images’ project. See more in:
