Sandra Mansi's Painting of Champ

Cryptid researcher, Paul Cropper, has unearthed another gem with this painting from 2007 of Champ done by the famous Sandra Mansi who took a picture of the creature back in 1977. Compare this painting with the actual photo below. Paul thinks the painting is somewhat Brontosaurian in nature and Sandra may have used some dinosaur painting as guidance.

  1. a signed copy of this would make a nice addition to my cryptid collection. perhaps I'll do a little digging and see what I can come up with...

    1. this was for auction on ebay. sadly, the auction has ended. if Sandra Mansi sold her paintings commercially, I'm sure there would be a market for them.

  2. Isn't it now accepted that Mansi's photo shows a log?

    1. Well, my knowledge of Lake Champlain is a lot less than Loch Ness (to put it mildly). But it looks like a strange log to me in a pretty unstable position.

    2. It's a ferret in a rowing boat?

  3. I believe our very own Mr Dinsdale has dissected the Mansi photo in some detail.

    I was interested to learn how shallow the water is in that bay (10-15feet).

    The photo does remind me of the australian one that appeared last year showing the half-sunken boat.
