In the Novohispanic period, this technique was used for the manufacture of religious images, but it was forgotten after the 19th century. There is currently a rescue project for this technique that started just a few years ago in the state of Michoacan, where artisans share the sculptural process of cane paste. In this sense, during this essay is intended to publicize this projetc and the process as part of the study for its historical and cultural protection.
