This is my rendition of the mythological water being known as the “Underwater Panther”, for me, a direct ancestral icon found etched onto Osage shell gorgets from Missouri burial mounds. The “Underwater Panther” possesses great supernatural power, including extremely keen vision. This fierce predator is shown peering through water reeds as it surfaces from the depths. Notice the large bright green eyes I have given it!
