Ancient, definitely cursed statue spins on its own in its case

A small statue of Neb Sanu in the Manchester Museum has been captured on film slowly rotating in its case throughout the day and night. The museum’s resident Egyptologist, Campbell Price, told the Telegraph that it’s probably due to a curse.

“In Ancient Egypt they believed that if the mummy is destroyed then the statuette can act as an alternative vessel for the spirit. Maybe that is what is causing the movement,” Price said. A physicist, Brian Cox, claims the rotation is due to “differential friction.”

Price disagrees though. He explained, “it has been on those surfaces since we have had it and it has never moved before. And why would it go around in a perfect circle?”

Price is the only one with a key to the case. They were able to use time lapse video to capture the haunted or cursed statue rotating.

This serves as another piece of supernatural wisdom. Just as one should not build a house on a native american burial ground, don’t destroy mummies if you don’t want their statues moving around creepily.
