The underwater panther is a mythological being that is present in many Native American legends. Also known by names such as the Mishipeshu or Wampus Cat, this fearsome creature was reputed to live underneath lakes and waterways. This design was inspired by the stories and legends of the Moundville people in my local area. Now you can own your very own underwater panther on a shirt, as a sticker, or carry it around with you on a travel mug.
