Marx Bigfoot / Sasquatch Handprint

Three plaster casts have been obtained of handprints of the reputed Bigfoot / Sasquatch. The prints measure more than half again greater than normal human hands and are relatively very broad. The thumb is non-opposable and there is correspondingly no elevation of the thenar eminence

During the summer of 1970, handprints of two of these animals were photographed and plaster casts of them were made by Ivan Marx, a game guide in northeastern Washington state. Marx loaned the original casts to Grover Krantz who then made molds from them in order to produce exact duplicates for further study.

Dr. Krantz passed away in 2002, but copies of this handprint are available here at BigFootCasts.com

An unexpected trait is the non-opposable thumb. The hand strongly suggests one designed for digging into the ground and for raking berries from bushes rather than being primarily for manipulating objects. Flexing all five digits in the same direction would best facilitate the suggested functions. Heavy callousing, including along all margins, would also be expected to follow from such uses.

Photo(s) may show multiple Bigfoot hand casts. Each are sold separately.

Handprint found by Ivan Marx, north of Colville, Washington, summer 1970. Length: 12.7 in. (32.3 cm.), Width: 10.4 in. (26.5 cm.). Plaster cast made by John W. Olsen in 1979 at Arizona State Museum from a cast obtained from Grover Krantz. (ASM Catalog No. 2011-470-2d)
