Here's a traditional wax candle like you'll find in many of the Zapotec village churches in Oaxaca. You can see the birds made out of beeswax. Sophia had a mold, passed down from her grandmother which she used to make the bird. She also had molds for pineapples and hands and angels and more. I was inspired by the level of commitment and devotion it takes to work in this kind of tradition.
