Object of the Week!

We're starting a new feature on our blog! Each week we'll feature an object from our collection and a short description. Let us know what you think!


This miniature kayak, with its narrow, wooden frame, must have been designed to glide gracefully and quickly through the water. But unlike the traditional double-bladed kayak paddle, this orange oar only has one blade! One of the defining features between a kayak and a canoe is the number of blades on the oar, so why do you think this model would have a paddle with only one blade?
