It may hunt you while taking the form of a powerful sea otter, or it may take the shape of a man and convince you to follow it into the woods. No matter what, a face-to-face encounter with a Kushtaka seldom ends well. These mysterious beasts of Indigenous Alaskan Tlingit lore are said to look very similar to sea otters but to be especially cunning and mischievous. Kushtaka often travel in groups. While roaming the wilds of Alaska, they will attempt to lure passersby into the wilderness by making cries that sound like a distressed woman or child. Once an unlucky individual is caught in their trap, the Kushtaka consume the souls of their victims, often turning their prey into Kushtaka in the process. Anderson Design Group poster artists hand-rendered a vintage-styled poster of what we think this creature might look like. This classic monster design and vintage poster art is available as a poster print, canvas, metal sign, mini-canvas, or as a notecard or postcard. To learn more about the Kushtaka and their cunning, evil machinations, check out this spooky information at the internet resource Only in Your State.
