Repujado is an ancient metal embossing technique that transforms a thin sheet of metal into a three-dimensional object by giving it volume and relief. Repujado has an important place in the art history of Mexico. Jose Galicia, a master of this art form, focuses much of his work on accurately reproducing ancient writings and symbols from the Mayan and Egyptian cultures.
