In a previous Bigfoot Lunch Club post, New Search for Lost Yeti Artifacts of Nepal we mentioned how Kiwi adventurer and Air New Zealand pilot, Mike Allsop, plans on finding the Pangboche Yeti skull and skeletal hand. These artifacts were stolen a monastery in the tiny Nepalese village of Pangboche, in the 1990s.
He has commissioned special effects shop Weta Workshops, a multi-award winning conceptual design and physical manufacturing facility known for their work on the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Narnia films, to create replicas of the skull cap and skeletal hand in order to replace what was stolen.
Ultimately Allsop is hoping someone will return the originals, “I am hoping that the person who has them wants to give them back.”
We also mentioned Allsop will hand-deliver the replicas to the monastery when he and 17 Air NZ co-workers travel to Pangboche in April. It’s April and the Dominion Post has an update on the story. Read the update to the Pangboche Skull and Hand at BigfootLunchClub.com
