NEWS: The Spinning Statue Neb-senu Paranormal activities !!!!!!
Neb-senu spinning statue from Ancient Egypt is causing debate in a British museum. The 10-inch tall statue has been on display at the Manchester Museum in Manchester, England, for 80 years but was recently captured on video rotating on its own.
ABC News reports that the museum's curator, Campbell Price, noticed one day that the statue had moved, though he was the only one with a key."But the next time I looked, it was facing in another direction-and a day later had yet another orientation," Price told The Sun. Price then put the statue back in its original position, locked the glass case, and set up a camera to film the statue over an 11-hour period. The resulting time-lapse video, Price says, shows the statue moving on its own.
"I noticed one day that it had turned around," Price said. "I thought it was strange because it is in a case and I am the only one who has a key ... I put it back but then the next day it had moved again. We set up a time-lapse video and, although the naked eye can't see it, you can clearly see it rotate on the film."
Price explained the history of the Egyptian idol and how this could make some superstitious.
"The statuette is something that used to go in the tomb along with the mummy. Mourners would lay offerings at its feet. The hieroglyphics on the back ask for 'bread, beer and beef'. 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," he said. "Most Egyptologists are not superstitious people," Price added.
However, other experts have found a scientific explanation for the movement, including vibrations from the museum that could cause the statue to move. "The statue only seems to spin during the day when people are in the museum," Carol Redmount, associate professor of Egyptian archaeology at the University of California, Berkeley, told ABC News. "It could have something to do with its individual placement and the individual character of the statue."
The hieroglyphs on the back of the statue read "bread, beer and beef," a "prayer for offerings for the spirit of the man," Price told the Sun.
