Egyptian God Of Death Statue Starts Spinning


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.

It is believed that there is a curse of the pharaohs which strikes anyone who dares to take relics from a pyramid tomb.

Experts decided to monitor the room on time-lapse video and were astonished to see it clearly show the statuette spinning 180 degrees - with nobody going near it.

The statue of a man named Neb-Senu is seen to remain still at night but slowly rotate round during the day.

Now scientists are trying to explain the phenomenon, with TV physicist Brian Cox among the experts being consulted.

    I doubt very much it's vibration from people, they must be big people to cause enough vibration to move a stone statue and why only the one?

    But yeah it's definitely a fake and someone is slowly moving it over the course of the day.

    AND hasn't anyone wondered why the owner hasn't straitened up their display, it's obviously an owner set up and i am sure if it wasn't time lapsed you would see the person moving it.

    to the head of this post "Egyptian God Of Death Statue Starts Spinning" the egyptians did not have a word for death so it is not the god of death.

    I agree with Truthseeker also. Vibration seems to be he culprit here.

    Sooooo it only moves during the day... when there's someone there to move it.. stays still all night, then turns in small incremements during the day.. with no timestamp etc its an extremelely clear fake in my view..

    I think the explaination is simple.
    It's moving due to vibration of the floor due to the visitors walking about etc.
    That would also explain why it doesn't move at night, no footsteps = no vibrations.
    So maybe not such a mstery afterall?

    Is it not possible that someone in that blur of moving images is the culprit?
