Did you know that some sailors of the 1850s were skilled artists?

During KCAW21, a special window exhibition showcases an array of the incredible tools and love tokens whittled, carved and even sewn by these mariners. From corset stays to pie crimpers, carved whale jawbones to painted whale eardrums, sailors’ tools to cribbage boards, nothing escaped their skill. Do come by to view these rare, unusual and intriguing marvels.
