Ancient Egyptian statue in museum moves on its own! [Video]

Believe it or not, but that is a 1,000-year-old Egyptian statue and it is locked in a glass case… meaning no one could have done this. To top it off, the statue has been in that case for 80 years — and the rotation only started in recent months. Creepy.

I suppose this could be a prank by the museum.

    So far, no answers, just speculation.

    I think the first question should be: why did it start to rotate? I’d bet something in the nearby environment has changed that would answer that question and why it only turns 180 degrees. If the case it is in can be turned around, do that to see if it will rotate to face front. Of course, turning the case it is in around changes the environment so that may change the outcome.

    I think it might be some kind of vibration, too. It seems to only move during the day hours and stops at night. Perhaps the other statues are too heavy to rotate by the vibrations. Not spooky to me, there has to be an explanation.

    [@Seamus McSeamus] Maybe. But why only one of the statues?

    Some type of vibration is the most likely cause of the movement. Something new, certainly, or this would have happened before. Perhaps a new truck route nearby or some construction?

    Oops!!!!!!! No Vid. But, it does sound strange.
