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 Wood Stork.  The Wood Stork is a large, bald heading wading bird.  It stands more than 3 feet tall, and has a 5 foot wing span.  It is the only stork breeding in the United States.  It serves as a good example of the Everglades ecosystem because their habitat requirements are so closely associated with one particular environment.

This kit includes: replica, sponges, disposable paint pallets, paint, Wood Stork 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.
