Ancient Egyptian statue has started MOVING sparking fears it has been struck by a 'curse of the Pharaohs'
It sounds like the something from the script of a Hollywood action adventure. But the 'mystery of the moving mummy' - which has seen an Egyptian statue mysteriously start to spin round in a display case - has spooked museum bosses. 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.

Sounds like a mystery for Sax Rohmer’s dream detective Moris Klaw and his daughter Isis.
“time-lapse” video? Holy Gumby, Batman, how could that happen?

Thanks Perdogg.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.

I Think it’s saying, “That damned Obama screwed up again.”
The mysterious vibration of the air conditioners, trucks driving by, subway/or L-Trains or jack hammers on the sidewalk on the uneven statue base.
Well! That’s a new twist!
It only moves during the daytime. It would be easy to hoax but why?
Where’s Amazing Randi?
Vibration from machinery or air conditioning unit in the building and an uneven, non-perfectly flat base on the statuette. Note that at about 180 degrees it reaches a stable point.
Yikes. You beat me to it. See my post #10. Brilliant minds seem to work in the same direction. At least in this case.
King Tut !
plus the relative vacuum in the case.
A mummy turns in it’s grave. Given the rape of everything by muslims since, what’s the surprise?
A little duct tape will fix that.
I got in the car one day and started hearing an odd buzzing sound and didn’t figure it out till my coffee cup reached the windshield and slid down and spilled.
I set up some kind of resonance when I got in the car causing the cup to walk across the roof.
Yep, great minds. Most people who have had a curio cabinet in the house have probably seen things walk in it.
The night guard is having a good ole time....
The statue appears to move only during the daytime. My guess is the vibrations from the floor from footsteps are affecting the statue. Or not. Good, good, good ...good vibrations. I kinda like the curse angle myself.
I forgot, ever have one of those vibrating football games when you were a kid? Wonder if all those plastic players were evil spirits running around.
Perhaps, but I find the choice of time-lapse video very suspect in this day and age of technology. Why not continuous video? It is cheap enough. Time-lapse provers nothing. Surely you caught my Gumby reference.
turning to face Mecca, the old Pharoah was converted in the afterlife - LOL
I was working in plastics when sonic welding started to enter the industry.
All mine just ran around in circles
So we just lit them on fire or blew them up with firecrackers.
Statue: I don't want to talk about it! (turns around to face the wall)
Statue: I said "I DON'T want to talk about it." (Checks to see if husband is paying attention.)
Husband: I'm not talking about it.
Statue: Yes, you are! (faces husband slightly, then turns back around)
Husband: No, I'm not.
Statue: You just said it. So you are. (Looks directly at husband.)
Husband: Okay. Whatever you say.
Statue: I don't want to talk about it! (Turns to face the wall again.)
Get ready for an earworm
Perhaps he was trying to
Walk Like an Egyptian
Affix velcro to the statue bottom and the glass, and see where it goes.
Hmmm. Gumby. Would they dare? Drumming up business for the Manchester Museum perhaps?
Please add me to this ping list. Thanks!
Call maintenance, they will drill it and screw it down with some sheetrock screws.
Egyptologist Campbell Price studies an ancient Egyptian statuette at the Manchester Museum, which appears to be moving on its own
Ghostbuster Dr. Peter Venkman looks at Egyptologist Campbell Price, thinking "What a nerd!"
The revenge of Moses! Its always the Jews fault.
THE CASE OF THE SPINNING MUMMY......
“We’ll, Holmes, you’ve examined everything. Why do think the mummy is spinning?”
“Elementary, my dear Watson......when all logical explanations have been ruled out, that only leaves an illogical explanation.”
“And that is?”
“Split Pea soup. It makes as much sense as anything else, and besides, I’m hungry.”
Let’s put Jerry Rivers on it. He’ll figure it out. Maybe if he stays there until he does...
We are not far from train tracks and stuff moves all over the house. I can’t hear or feel the train, but the china cabinet sure can.
A little mystery never hurt business -- think of all the "haunted" inns where people flock to hopefully have paranormal experiences.
Surely these people know about Museum Wax. They use it a lot here in earth-quaky Caliornia: Museum Wax
From "Night at the Museum 2" (Amy Adams is much nicer to view than Ben Stiller)
I see we have an engineer and a very good private investigator in our midst!
Wouldn’t it move further to the edge if the base was uneven? Not do a 180 in the same spot?
I’ll ask him what he thinks about it.
If you believe this you're just a silly asp.
You're so ignorant you don't even know what the meaning of isis.
And that means you're dumber than Miley Osiris, which is pretty bad.
So don't be a scarabycat.
Aswan freeper to another, the aforementioned female statue is as harmless and sweet as that little puppet, Lambcheops. I'm sure Berber Clinton would date her in the sphinx of an eyelid.
Having fun, I see.
“The revolving statue does not signify an Egyptian CURSE, I tell you!
If you believe this you’re just a silly asp.”
Very witty of you. I sphinx you made an excellent post. Well done!
