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 Fort Sumter.  Fort Sumter is located in Charleston Harbor, South Carolina.  The Fort was named after Revolutionary War hero General Thomas Sumter and is best known as the site where shots were fired that started the American Civil War on April 12, 1861.

This kit includes: 3.5" x 6.75" ceramic whale tooth replica, sponges, plates, paint, Fort Sumter 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.
