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 Sea Otter.  The Sea Otter is a marine mammal native to the coasts of the northern and eastern North Pacific Ocean.  The Sea Otter possesses the densest coat of fur the in the animal kingdom.  In the earlier years of Maritime trade their fur was in great demand and they were hunted where there was only a small fraction left.

This kit includes: replica, sponges, disposable paint pallets, paint, Sea Otter 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.
