Mythical Creatures: Mapinguari (Brazil) By Derek Anderson, Joel Anderson, 2022

This beast truly is fearsome. A Brazilian folklore story and a legend of the Amazon rainforest, the mapinguari is a monstrous cyclops giant. But unlike other cyclops, the mapinguari has a mouth protruding from its abdomen. Also called the juma, the mapinguari is described by many as a hulking, hairy creature with a body not unlike Bigfoot but just one eye, a gaping mouth, ape-like ears, and a second, protruding mouth in the center of its stomach region. Others have described the mapinguari as somewhat resembling a giant ground sloth, a now extinct beast that lived in the Amazon region during the last Ice Age. Excited by the mythical beasts and the stories that follow them across the globe and through the centuries, Anderson Design Group poster artists hand-rendered a vintage-styled poster of what we think the mapinguari might have looked 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 history and stories of the mapinguari, check out the website All That is Interesting.
