The ya-te-veo is a terrifying, man-eating plant thought to live in South America. The plant (some describe it as a tree, others say it is a shrub) was first described in writing by westerners in J.W. Buel’s 1887 book Land and Sea. Buel described the ya-te-veo plant (translated to “I-See-You-Already”) as being able to capture insects and animals but also having the strength to grab humans and even horses, should they get too close to the plant. Descriptions of the plant are usually of a stunted tree with a short, thick trunk and long tendril-like branches that it uses to catch prey. Excited by stories of a carnivorous plant in South American and African folklore, Anderson Design Group poster artists hand-rendered a vintage-styled poster of what we think the ya-te-veo 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.
