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 Everglades is the largest tract of wilderness east of the Rocky Mountains.  It is located in South Florida and home to some of the most rare and endangered species in the United States.

The motif provided is the Alligator.  The Alligators of the Everglades live at the southern extreme of their range.  They primarily inhabit freshwater swamps and marshes and are found in rivers, lakes, and other smaller bodies of water.

This kit includes: replica, sponges, disposable paint pallets, paint, Alligator 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.
