Horse egg in National Museum Paro

Her Majesty the Queen Mother gifted one of national museum’s most precious objects the ‘horse egg’ in 1969. 

Made of an unknown substance, the egg is believed to have originated from a horse in Trashiyangtse.

According to National museum director Khenpo Phuntsok Tashi, this egg could have formed as a result of excess salt consumption by the horse, or it could be a fossil.
