After exploring galleries in Newport, learn about Scrimshaw, a type of art made by many sailors to pass the time aboard whaling vessels, carving scenes into the remains of the whale such as the teeth and bones. During the mid 19th century, the whaling industry flourished in Nantucket. Today, much of the scrimming is done on antique pieces of ivory such as piano keys and billiard balls.
