Why is This Egyptian Statue Moving?
While moving statues aren’t the normal fare around here, I thought it was interesting enough to post. Apparently the Manchester Museum is perplexed as to why this one statue that they have on display repeatedly turns around to face away from onlookers. It is in a glass case, so on one is moving it, and time lapse cameras seem to show that it slowly turns on its own. Is it haunted?
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.
Egyptologist Campbell Price studies an ancient Egyptian statuette at the Manchester Museum, which appears to be moving on its own.
I am betting on a more mundane explanation for the slow movement of the statue. Take a look at the video and see if you can come up with a reason why this Egyptian statue is turning on its own.
What I Think is Going On
The best guess I can come up with is that the vibration from people walking on the floor is slowly making this statue move. If you watch the video, it only moves during the daylight hours and is still during the night. Why it is starting to do this now I can’t tell you, but I am quite sure this is something mundane.
