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 Basilica and Obelisk in St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City.  Vatican City is a walled enclave within the city of Rome.    It is recognized internationally as the smallest independent state in the world. 

This kit includes: replica, sponges, disposable paint pallets, paint, Basilica and Obelisk 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.
