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 ship The Mayflower.  The Mayflower transported the English Separatists known today as the Pilgrims from Plymouth in England to the New World in 1620.   The historical voyage led to the creation of the Plymouth Colony in America. 

This kit includes: replica, sponges, disposable paint pallets, paint, Mayflower motif, and FREE lesson download. Lesson contains: history of the artifact, history of the time period, full color map, designs & motifs, and step-by-step decorating instructions.
