Thank you so much! Wonderful talk
PLease can you explain the impact of different mordants on the resulting colours?
Thank you, that was incredible! Does the Cochineal insect get its color from eating the prickly pear cactus fruit?
Thank you, very much!
Fascinating and informative! Muchas Gracias!
Thank you so much, amazing history!!
thank you so much! lovely to see you!
No mention of cinnabar. How do colors and stability in light compare to cochineal.

Lac also has a very strong smell.
Not specifically about cochineal but - Elena - Another great presentation, thank you. I saw your presentation for the Fowler, too. I have a burning question about the tie-dye Wari tunic. I understand the discontinuous warp and weft weaving process, and I’m thinking about the order of the dye baths. Most of the rectangles are easy to decipher —red and white with a “black” background, yellow on a green background— but how did they get the red pattern on a yellow background? Was it a different way to bind it?
Very interesting. Thanks. Can you tell us more about Armenian cochineal?
Really enjoyed the migration of cochineal to all the countries of the world. Thank You
Fantastic, Elena. Tell us about Armenian cochineal.
Did you find any regulations in the early centuries of royalties and nobles only being allowed to use these colors
Fascinating, great presentation - grateful!
Are there current research projects?
Wonerful presentation. Thank you so much.
Wonderful ! Thank you
Thank you. Does the freshness of the cochineal make a difference in the intensity of the color? I have some that is about 5 years old and am wondering if it’s still worth using?
Do you think climate change will affect the Cochineal production?
when working with the dyes to give a comparison did you look at the historical recipes too. Also the historical ways the dyes were prepared (as in dried or used fresh, peeled or not etc)
How did there happen to be cochineal in Armenia?
Thank you so much, so inspiring.
Fabulous! So interesting! Thank you!
Wonderful Presentation…Thank you!!!
Can you speak about the ecological impacts of importing cactus and cochineal to Australia?
do you think the cochineal found the in the ancient wrecks were still viable
thank you very much! I love this workshops.
Thanks so much. Very informative.
brilliant‼️thank you so very much
Love this lecture. Sorry if I missed the information but was the trade cloth dyed wool or some other fiber.
This was absolutely fascinating thank you so much!! Do you know how cochineal insects are collected industrially, are they now farmed or still collected from a natural population level in South America?
Thank you so very much. I want to return to Peru. This has been so inspiring, as I have been working with a lot of red in my encaustic painting .
I've heard that cochineal farming was not conducive to large plantations during the slave period of the Americas--but rather small family farms produced it. Do you know if this is still the case in terms of its production or if cochineal is now produced on large swaths of land?
Wonderful lecture, Elena
Bravo. Thank you, Elena.
Can you post the link to Elena’s publication at the Met?
Thank You Minsun for the link
So interesting, thank you very much!
Years ago I came across a paper that had the old illustration of “enemies of cochineal”. I saved it and it always makes me laugh!!
Thanks so much for this very informative lecture. Elena you teach at UCLA. I was wondering if your classes are available online?
Thank you so much! Brilliant and inspiring!
would love to see the color dye rotation order that was reference in a prior talk
Thank you Elena
can you speak to the history of the people harvesting cochineal, how they were compensated, and treated.
Thank you so much!!! Kind regards from Argentina
In our Arizona yard, we see these white things on our cacti. The bugs in this white stuff do make that red when pressed on paper. How can I collect the bugs (with the white fluff?) and then how to process them for my dyeing?
Yes Hilary I would love to know this too, and how this happens today

Very, very inspired by all your knowledge and sharing. Thank you for a wonderful slide presentation.
When I dip a cloth into a cochineal bath, the color bleeds up into the dry cloth, and at the end is black. Why does that happen?
Were there deities or spiritual holidays/practices you have studied associated with the cochineal species?
Thank you for an intriguing presentation!! Wondering if there is any “storytelling” from the pre-Columbian era that may have hinted to how they dyed their reds?
Great talk. Thanks. Is your top dyed with cochineal?
Elena, Do you know my aunt Prudence Harper who was curator of the Ancient Near East at the Met?
thank you, very interesting. (England)
Thank you for this fabulous presentation!
thank you a million Elina and Amy & Katy Botanical Colors. love your connection of the reds with traditional ranks/status. Cochineal studies returns me to my study at the Prince's School of Traditional Arts, London. love it that I am continuing in my studies through your lecture. love from Borneo.
Superb presentation, thank you to all involved!
Thank you for such a wonderful presentation
There’s a terrific exhibition on at the Royal Ontario Museum called Chintz: the cloth that changed the world. Sadly the museum is currently closed, but it will be on until 2021 at least. There’s a large catalogue and information about the natural dyes used in creating these wonderful textiles. Obviously the red they used was different to cochineal.
Thank you - excellent!
