Statue Recovered From Mummy’s Tomb Spookily Spinning On Its Own

Subscribe to TheFW on

Sitting as still as a statue may not be an appropriate way to describe someone who isn’t moving.

A 4,000-year-old statue kept in Britain’s Manchester Museum has reportedly been spinning all by itself, which you can see in the time-lapse video above.

The 10-inch tall statue was taken from a mummy’s tomb in Egypt and has been housed in the museum for the last 80 years without any incident.

Museum curator Campbell Price is baffled by this development, saying “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.”

What do you think? Is there a supernatural force at work or is this just some sort of prank?
