Ancient Egyptian statue has started MOVING (Video at link)

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.

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.

“time-lapse” video? Holy Gumby, Batman, how could that happen?

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.

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 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.

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.

This mystery has been going on for ages and will never be solved:

Statue: I don't want to talk about it! (turns around to face the wall)

Husband: Okay.

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.)

"A little duct tape will fix that."

Affix velcro to the statue bottom and the glass, and see where it goes.

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

The revolving statue does not signify an Egyptian CURSE, I tell you!

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.
