Ancient Egyptian Statue Moves On Its Own Inside Glass Case in British Museum

Wow! According to the Huffington Post, an ancient Egyptian statue (nearly 4,000 years old) moves on its own inside a glass case in a British museum. The statue eventually faces the east once it stops moving. Is this a magical statute trying to show us something? You decide!

Staff at the Manchester Museum in Manchester, England say the 4,000-year-old statue, recovered from a mummy's tomb, has been spinning without anybody moving it, NDTV reports.

The 10-inch tall statue of a man named Neb-Senu was originally an offering to the god Osiris and has been in the museum for 80 years.

Price returned the statue to its original position and set up a time-lapse video, which he says shows the statue moving without the help of humans.
