Manchester Museum Statue Eerily Spins by Itself

Nothing like a little magic to spice up a casual museum visit.
Over several months, employees at the Manchester Museum noticed one of their statues spinning slowly while sitting in its glass case. The odd thing was that it had no physical contact with anything while on the shelf.

Several months ago, we noticed that one of our Middle Kingdom statuettes was spinning around imperceptibly slowly in its new case in our Egyptian Worlds gallery. We set up a time lapse camera to take one image every minute for a week. This is the result.

The cause may be subtle vibrations from footfall or traffic outside, 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.

A mystery? See for yourself.

According to the museum's YouTube video description, the statuette sat on the shelf "for decades and has never moved before." Curious about what could've caused the movement, employees set up a time-lapse video that would capture the statue's image every minute for a week.
The brief clip shows the statue rotating 180 degrees over a five-day span, even though it looks like no one touches it.
The museum says that such movement could've been caused by "subtle vibrations from footfall or traffic outside." However, none of the other statues on the shelf have ever moved. Witchcraft? We'll let you be the judge. Check out the video, above; then tell us what you think in the comments.
