Mummy’s Curse: Ancient Egyptian Statue Spinning On Its Own?

A nearly 4,000-year-old Egyptian statuette has been photographed apparently spinning on its own, according to reports. On Monday’s Good Morning America, the reporters noted that the small statue has apparently rotated 180 degrees to show tourists it’s backside where demands gifts of beer and beef.

The statue, a 10 inch replica of a man named Neb-Senu, dates back to 1800 B.C. and has occupied its perch at the Manchester Museum for nearly 80 years.

ABC News played a time-lapse video of security camera footage from a British museum which shows the ancient Egyptian relic apparently spinning in place.

Some have suggested that the rotation could be due to subtle vibrations from exterior traffic or museum visitors, but one museum curator says that the movements have occurred both in the day and at night while the facility was closed.
