The colourful tinwork impressions that are seen in Oaxaca City are the produce of an industry that started in colonial times making candle holders and street lamps, and to date the tin workers use the sheet tin to make light shades and lamps that cast dancing shadows. Other popular articles include mirrors and animals. Tinwork in Oaxaca is confined to Oaxaca City centre or other points where there is a high concentration of tourist present like the coastal markets, since that is the market for the artisans who produce this craft.
