Ancient Egyptian Statue Spins On Its Own in Glass Caseat

An Ancient Egyptian statue, which is over 4,000 years old , discovered from a mummy's tomb, mysteriously has been spinning round untouched inside its glass display case at the Manchester Museum in Manchester, England, reports Mail Online.

The statue of a man named Neb-Senu,10-inch tall, which is an offering to Osiris, the god of the afterlife, the underworld and the dead in the ancient Egyptian religion, caught on camera baffling 180-degree turn without anybody moving it as the curators of the Manchester Museum noticed the mysteriously moving.

"I noticed one day that it had turned around. I thought it was strange because it is in a case and I am the only one who has a key," Campbell Price, 29, an Egyptologist at the Museum told Manchester Evening News..

The Egyptologist returned the statue in its original position and set up a time lapse video to monitor the room after his first noticing. The video tape appeared the statue remain still at night while rotate slowly during the daytime, reports Mail Online.

"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." Price added.

Campbell Price believes that there could be 'spiritual explanation' to the spinning statue while other scientists suggest the statue spinning caused by visitors footsteps.

“But it has been on those surfaces since we have had it, and it has never moved before,” Campbell Price said. “And why would it go around in a perfect circle?”
