Art In History’s artifact replica is a sperm whale tooth from the time of great sea-faring activities such as whaling, exploration, and trade.  Known artifacts from this era were made by whalers and/or sailors who were out at sea for extended periods of time.  During sailors idle time, scrimshaw art was done utilizing crude sailing needles and other instruments. These tools were used to scratch, or etch, imagery into a sperm whale’s tooth.

The motif provided is the Mission Carmel or San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo the second of the California Missions.  Founded in 1770.   The mission was originally at the presidio in Monterey.  It was relocated in 1771 to the Carmel Valley at the village of Ekheya.
