An ancient Egyptian statue in Manchester Museum has been filmed spinning seemingly on it's own accord.
- 10-inch tall relic is an offering to Egyptian God Osiris, God of the dead
- It has been filmed on a time lapse seemingly spinning 180 degrees
- TV physicist Brian Cox among the experts being consulted on mystery
- Some now believe there could be 'spiritual explanation' for turning statue
Another possible explanation could be that the statue is magnetic and rotates towards an area of opposite polarity. From the article: "in recent
weeks, curators have been left scratching their heads after they kept finding it facing the wrong way". This would support the magnetic theory as it
doesn't move more than 180 degrees.
Will do some research and update this thread accordingly.
ETA: Movement most likely caused by vibrations from visitors passing through the museum. This is why it only observed rotating in the

I even searched before I posted and nothing came up! Oh well thread closed
it's cool the samurai search engine doesn't find half the threads that the old search used to find i generally give the link when i can
remember it being posted if only so that all the relevant info is in one place to find

Ok I know this is serious and a very interesting thread but Hey Osiris was the Egyptian God of the Dead and Resurrection.
Lame track I know.
The magnetic theory may hold some water as with the theory about visitor footsteps or other nearby oscillating or vibrational influence but I do like
the idea that the Egyptian's believed if the mummy was destroyed the statue could provide a second safe haven,, (they believed if the mummy was
destroyed a soul would forget whom it was and be lost).

Most likely a balancing issue and vibrations of people walking past slowly made it move. This is supported by the fact it initially moved much faster,
and then near the end (when it was more balanced) it barely moved.
