So file this under the “what the f?” category. A 4000 year old statue of Neb-Senu on display at the Manchester Museum in England has inexplicably started to rotate on its own after politely sitting still for the past 80 years in a display case, reports the Huffington Post.
The best part? Its spooky dance has been caught on film.
No one has yet to explain why the statue has suddenly started moving on its own, why it rotates exactly 180 degrees before stopping, or why none of the other statues seem to boast the same dance moves.
“The cause may be subtle vibrations from football or traffic outside,”curator Campbell Price says, “but the statuette has been on a glass shelf in about the same place in the gallery for decades and has never moved before – and none of the other objects in the case move in any way.”
We here at Jack think the statue, which originally was an offering to Osiris, god of the dead, is cursed, employees of the museum are in grave danger, and all the other statues will also come to life, revolt against their captures, and demand to be returned to the graves from which they were stolen from.
That or it might be the footsteps/vibrations thing. We’ve been wrong before.
