Pangboche Yeti Skeletal “Hand” Delivery

Posted by: Guy Edwards on April 1st, 2011

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

    While I admire anyone that can foster this kind of publicity for their cause and their treks to the Himalaya, several things about this whole business are faulty.

    The Pangboche hand was smaller than the reconstruction shown. Our cryptozoology museum in Portland has had a correctly fashioned replica for some time now of the hand and the skullcap.

    The original one had parts that were human, as Peter Byrne “lifted” (in 1959) original bones from the one in Nepal. Therefore, the one stolen in 1991 was already a partial fake.

    The theft appears to have been by someone in the archaeological artifacts underground. That they would hand over these stolen artifacts is beyond comprehension.

    I have been in communication with these folks, who were unaware of the real history of these items, so, at least, I am happy to see they may have read my Slick book and corrected their press releases.

    These people are good-hearted, but their efforts might be better displayed in new attempts to find current Yeti material.
