4,000-year-old Egyptian statue in UK museum moves on its own
London: Curse of the spinning statue! In some eerie news, a 4,000-year-old Egyptian statue has puzzled curators at Manchester museum after the relic started to mysteriously spin 180 degrees on its own.
The 10-inch tall relic, which dates back to 1800 BC, was found in a mummy's tomb and has spent 80 years at the Manchester Museum. However, in recent weeks, curators were spooked after they kept finding the statue facing the wrong way.
Experts decided to monitor the room on time-lapse video and were astonished to see it clearly show the statuette spinning 180 degrees - with nobody going near it. The statue of a man named Neb-Senu is seen to remain still at night but slowly rotate round during the day, 'Manchester Evening News' reported.
Scientists who explored the Egyptian tombs in the 1920s were popularly believed to be struck by a 'curse of the Pharaohs'. Campbell Price, a curator at the museum on Oxford Road, believes there may be a spiritual explanation to the spinning statue.
"I noticed one day that it had turned around. I thought it was strange because it is in a case and I am the only one who has a key," said Price.
