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

Daily Mail

Could it be a prank by museum staff?

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 daytime.

it's cool
the samurai search engine doesn't find half the threads that the old search used 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).

It is fairly obvious that it only moves during daylight hours and when groups of people are moving past it.

I would assume that someone is simply playing a trick on the museum staff.

Yeah it's almost certainly due to vibrations from people passing through the museum.

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.

If that is the case, why is nothing else moving? Smaller less heavy objects I imagine would also move from these vibrations.

I call prank by the staff in some way

I would imagine it's due to a balancing issue as OccamsRazor04 proposed.

Could be a prank, however Manchester Museum doesn't seem like the kind of place that would have employees pulling such stunts (other than for publicity).

Whatever the cause of the movement is, which most probably is as others have mentioned before me above, it looks creepy as hell!

But why that statue and none of the other ones?

I guess they have flatter bases. I'll try to illustrate:

Why does everything have to be explained? I mean, can't we have things, as humans, that we just can't explain?

Everything CAN be explained it just sometimes takes a little digging to find the answer
