This appears on various folklore and cryptozoology sites as an illustration of a bunyip. None I can find credit an artist or source. It has a 19th century look to it, but that’s just speculation.
If you know who the artist is or where to find a higher quality copy of this image, please reblog with info.
As an Australian as soon as I saw the top of it’s head while scrolling I recognised it as a bunyip and got quite nostaligic as I haven’t ever seen anyone blogging or talking about these cool mythological creatures on Tumblr before.
This painting is by Ainslie Roberts I am pretty certain it was first published in The Dawn of Time, Australian Aboriginal Myths in Paintings by Ainslie Roberts with text from Charles P. Mountford (link above to Google Books result of image being used within another book entitled Bunyips: Australia’s Folklore of Fear by Robert Holden, Nicholas Holden)
Hope this helps :>
