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 USS Constitution.  The USS Constitution is the world’s oldest commissioned naval vessel afloat.  The USS Constitution was named by President George Washington after the Constitution of the United States of America. 

This kit includes: replica, sponges, disposable paint pallets, paint, USS Constitution 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.
