The Mystery of the Rotating Egyptian Statue is Solved [VIDEO]

England’s Manchester Museum had a problem on its hands. A four thousand year old Egyptian statue named Neb-Sanu kept being turned. Was it a ghost? Or a wayward employee?

To get to the bottom of it, the museum filmed the statue. The result was, in time lapse, is the statue turning during the day, but not at night. Sadly, it was science and not the afterlife that was responsible for the statue’s travels. Drat!

Turns out, that the vibrations of people moving past the relic caused it to “walk.” This is nothing new, as many curators are face with damage to artifacts every year from it.

The most successful method of stopping the movement of the statue would be to place wax on the base, but there is debate as to whether that would damage it.

Personally, I say as long as the statue isn’t damaged, let it spin!
