Legends Of The National Parks: New River Gorge's MothMan By Derek Anderson, Joel Anderson, 2022
- Legends Of The National Parks: New River Gorge's MothMan
Part-man, part-moth, this humanoid creature with insect/bird-like wings and a moth-like head was the source of years-long investigations and research, stakeouts, law enforcement examination, and inquiry. The Mothman of Point Pleasant, West Virginia first appeared in 1966, with dozens of eyewitnesses coming forward over the following year, claiming they'd seen the beast. Some believe that the abrupt drop in Mothman sightings was because the creature had left Point Pleasant, West Virginia, perhaps going into hiding in nearby New River Gorge National Park. It's hard to say where Mothman is now, but visitors to New River Gorge should keep an eye on the sky for a humanoid creature flying above, just in case! To celebrate the West Virginia legend, Anderson Design Group poster artists hand-rendered an original illustration of the legendary creature, a vintage poster of Mothman in his natural habitat. This artwork would make an excellent home decor piece or gift, available as a poster, print, canvas, metal sign, mini-canvas, notecard, or postcard.
