Grootsland Art

Commissioned Artwork: Grootslang

This is the Grootslang. I created this cryptid creature / monster art for Fairytales and Myths.

The Grootslang is a cryptid from South African folklore. Grootslang means “Great Serpent” in the Afrikaans language of South Africa. Afrikaner legend describes the Grootslang as a gigantic primeval snake that lives in a pit or subterranean cave in a remote part of Richtersveld, a desert in the Northern Cape province of South Africa. Legends refer to the cave in which Grootslang lives as the Bottomless Pit or Wonder Hole.
