Loved the vid! :flop:

I looked up 'Neb Sanu' and cannot find him amongst the listed Egyptian deities - here's the relevant quotes from the 'Belfast Telegraph':

The statue of Neb-Sanu, which dates back to 1800 BC, was found in a mummy’s tomb and has been at the Museum for eighty years.


The statuette is something that used to go in the tomb along with the mummy.

“Mourners would lay offerings at its feet.

“In Ancient Egypt they believed that if the mummy is destroyed then the statuette can act as an alternative vessel for the spirit. Maybe that is what is causing the movement.”.

So, I think they're telling us that 'Neb-Sanu' was not a God or even a local deity, but just a man who had a statuette of himself placed in his tomb, as insurance against his mummy being destroyed.

So its not an 'God-idol' of a pagan religion - just a statuette of a man, long dead.

But why, after 80 years in the museum, its suddenly taken to moving is another question! :headscratch:

Anyone know what's it made of? Stone, plaster or wood?

It may act differently to the other statuettes in the case because it made of a different material, it may be affected by the temperature changes, or vibrations, unlike the others, because of what its made of - hence it moves during the heat of the day, but remains still in the coolness of the night?

Newton's 1st law it states that:

"An object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an outside force."

This means that there has to be a unbalanced force (like gravity) to make an object move.

Maybe the force being applied to this object is a combination of vibration and temperature - or its 'Neb-Sanu' back from the dead! :shock:

Spinning Egyptian statuette brings talk of curses, end times

According to The Telegraph, an Egyptian statue in a display case at the Manchester Museum has mysteriously moved on its own accord. The Telegraph reports that the 10-inch statute is of Neb-Sanu and dates back to 1800 BCE. Discovered in a mummy's tomb, it has been on display at the museum for 80 years and reportedly has not moved during that time. It's not a journalistic hoax — the Museum itself has been saying the same thing.
The Manchester Museum's Campbell Price started observing the movement back in February, prompting the time lapsed video production. Back in February, Price wrote on the Museum's blog:
Most Egyptologists are not superstitious people. When I first noticed that one of our Middle Kingdom statuettes (Acc. no. 9325) had been turned around 180 degrees to face the back of its case in our new Ancient Worlds galleries, I wondered who had changed the object’s position this without telling me. The Egyptians themselves would have appreciated the concern to make visible for passers-by the text on its back pillar – a prayer for offerings for the deceased. Yet the next time I looked into the case, the statue was facing in another direction – and a day later had yet another orientation. None of the other objects in the display had moved. The case was locked. And I have the only key.
The statuette had always intrigued me. It entered the Manchester collection in 1933, as part of a donation of five objects from Miss Annie Barlow of Bolton – three of which at one time were considered to be modern forgeries.
The inscription on the back pillar reads: “An offering which the king gives to Osiris, Lord of Life, that he may give a voice offering, consisting of bread, beer, oxen and fowl for the Ka-spirit of’. As is known for other statues of this date and type, the man’s name – Nebsenu(?) - is inscribed on the front of the statue’s base. He bears what Alan Gardiner called as “obscure” title: Hry (n) tm. The distribution of the inscriptions suggests that the statuette was prefabricated with the standard offering formula on the back pillar and that the man’s name was added later to the base.
In last week's post about the phenomenon, Price wrote, "The cause may be subtle vibrations from footfall or traffic outside, but the statuette has been on a glass shelf in about the same place in the gallery for decades and has never moved before – and none of the other objects in the case move in any way. A mystery? See for yourself."
The moving statue can be seen on a time-lapsed video published today at The Telegraph and last week on the Museum's blog:

From "differential friction" to a "curse," The Telegraph describes the phenomenon as a mystery — but American end times preacher Paul Begley sees it as something biblical. "There's Bible prophecy that says these events will happen!" he proclaimed. Describing the footage, he said that "It will blow your mind, but it is in the Bible and this is certainly, we are living in the days the Bible said."
