Copper has been worked in the Mexican state of Michoacán since pre- Colombian times, during the time of the indigenous Purépecha empire. The Purépecha developed techniques for extracting copper and used it to create tools, household objects, and jewelry. In the 16th century, during the Spanish colonial period, the first bishop of Michoacán refined the craft by introducing European metalwork techniques and organizing family-owned workshops. These workshops allowed the craft to be passed down generation to generation, as it is today. The copper used to create this piece was recycled from construction and industrial projects.
