The Embedded Maque consists of applying on wooden objects, or gourds, a paint made from earth and natural pigments; It has its origin in Mexico, in the Purépecha region, specifically in the city of Uruapan, Michoacán, which is considered the cradle of the embedded Maque. The origins of this technique go back to pre-Hispanic times, since these objects were used in ceremonies, however, the arrival of the Spanish marked a change, since new colors were introduced and their use was no longer for rituals. The maque technique is historically made from well-defined materials; These are: 1) Earths, 2) Pigments of plant, animal or more regularly mineral origin, 3) Linseed or chia oil, cooked with axe, garlic and ocote, 4) ending with the object that will serve as the surface. The process can be divided into three main stages: anchoring, drawing, and trimming and embedding. The indigo Jícara is the result of the tradition of the technique with contemporary graphics and its name refers to the color of the piece.
