Is this ancient Egyptian statue a sign that there really is a curse of the Pharaohs? Relic of the god of death found inside mummy's tomb and kept in museum for 80 years starts SPINNING on its own

10-inch tall relic, is an offering to Egyptian God Osiris, God of the dead
It has been filmed on a time lapse, seemingly spinning 180 degrees
TV physicist Brian Cox among the experts being consulted on mystery
But some now believe there could be 'spiritual explanation' for turning statu

It sounds like the something from the script of a Hollywood action adventure.

But the 'mystery of the moving mummy' - which has seen an Egyptian statue mysteriously start to spin round in a display case - has spooked museum bosses.

The 10-inch tall relic, an offering to the Egyptian God Osiris, was found in a mummy's tomb and has been at the Manchester Museum for 80 years.

But in recent weeks, curators have been left scratching their heads after they kept finding it facing the wrong way. They now believe there could be a 'spiritual explanation' for the turning statue.

Yeah we saw that. I think it must be due to vibrations or something since it only happens when people are there. 13.gif

It only happens when people walk by it. It's totally motionless at night. Sounds like the museum needs more visitors and this is the spin they cooked up to get 'em there. chuckle.gif

I have no clue how long this has been going on. If it only started recently maybe I'll have to reconsider. damned.gif

Their video has recorded it rotating to its left over the course of three days until facing backwards.

Even more mysteriously, it appears to spin only during daylight hours, and does not turn beyond 180 degrees. Some, including Professor Cox, have suggested that vibrations caused by the footsteps of passing visitors makes the statuette turn on its glass shelf.

Do not forget the time difference ! If the statue is original and was made in Egypt. It would be dark in Egypt while it is day time in Manchester NY...
