Video: Mystery of the rotating Egyptian statue


Museum workers at the Manchester Museum are puzzled at a 10-inch Egyptian statue of Neb-Sanu, which dates back to 1800 BC, which appears to rotate all by itself. The time lapse above shows the statue’s rotation over a number of days. The statue was found in a mummy’s tomb and has been at the Museum for eighty years but the rotation is a relatively new occurrence. Suggested theories so far include everything from vibrations to an ancient curse. Credit: Manchester Museum.
