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 Owl.  The Owl hides in dense undergrowth in deep woods.  They do not migrate but their home range can be more than 500 miles.  They have big circular heads with white spots on the back, and white streaks on their stomachs.

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