Museum Can’t Explain Why Ancient Statue Suddenly Started Spinning - Gawker

An ancient statue made as an offering to Osiris, the Egyptian god of death, that is currently housed at the Manchester Museum in England has suddenly started spinning inside its closed display case — and no one seems to know why.

time-lapse video released by the museum shows the 4000-year-old relic of Neb-Senu slowly turning around inside its case without any apparent assistance from the outside world.

Found in a mummy’s tomb some 80 years ago, the statue has been kept encased at the museum ever since.

Its current caretaker, Campbell Price, was the first one to notice the strange phenomenon, and says he first realized something was off when he found the statue askew, reset it, and then found it askew again the following day.

“In Ancient Egypt they believed that if the mummy is destroyed then the statuette can act as an alternative vessel for the spirit,” Price, and Egyptologist by trade, told the Manchester Evening News. “Maybe that is what is causing the movement.”

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

Reblogging for RIGHT THEN be very careful where you’re looking if you set foot in that museum. ;)

On the other hand, maybe it’s just something like those magnetic ballerina dolls I had as a kid.

It looks to me like it is only shifting during the day when there are people walking around. I would guess it is shifting because of vibrations caused by people walking by.

I kind of would be ok with an 8th Harry Potter book that would just involve a series of really comedic/bitterly sad involvements of the gang struggling to return to normal life and failing because nothing has been normal since they were fucking 11 years old

HORCRUX?!

oh nevermind that’s just a toaster.
