A small statue of the god Osiris, made in Egypt around 1800 BC, stumped employees Manchester Museum, where it is exposed, after the self-made 180-degree turn. Movement stands in a glass case of ancient artifacts have been recorded by surveillance cameras, while on the video it is clear that a statue nobody touches.
When fast recording can be seen as a figure carved in stone, slowly but steadily turning in place around its axis. Experts can not explain the process and in desperation are willing to see in him a harbinger of the "curse of the Pharaohs," in which a terrible punishment should comprehend anyone who disturb the peace in the tomb of the pharaoh, or indirectly involved in this.
According to the newspaper Manchester Evening News, figure height of about 25 centimeters under the name Sky-Seine, was found in the tomb of the Pharaoh in Egypt during the excavations.
In 1933, an exhibit depicting the static standing at full height master underworld god Osiris, came to the exhibition at Manchester Museum, reports The Daily Mail.
29-year-old museum curator Campbell Price told the Manchester Evening News, that next to the statue was installed a digital camera that was filming everything that happens during the day and at night, after the traffic figures were first spotted them in February. It is interesting that the statue moves only during the day and at night stays still.
British physicist Brian Cox, who consulted with Price, suggested that the motion is caused by "differential friction" stone pedestal of the statue on a glass shelf in the window, where she is due to small vibrations that produce the steps of visitors. However, the curator said that before the exhibit stood in the same place, but no improvement was observed. Also, it seems odd that figure is moving exactly in a circle.
As recalled by The New York Daily News, the first researchers tombs were very afraid of the so-called "curse of the Pharaohs." Word of this came after the opening of the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922. In just seven years after the event, 22 people died prematurely - 13 participated in the work of the tomb and 9 members of their families. As noted by Price, now the majority of Egyptologists are not superstitious.
When buried in the tomb of the pharaoh mummy placed small statues of gods, statues of the dead themselves and their servants. Pyramid served as the seat of the immortal soul of Pharaoh, so close to the mummy housed a variety of things, which, according to the Egyptians, the deceased might need in the afterlife.
