Recently, a 10-inch statue of a man named Neb-Sanu, which has been on display at the Manchester Museum in the U.K. for 80 years, has learned a new trick. According to curator Campbell Price, who spoke to The Independent, “I noticed one day that it had turned around. I thought it was strange because it is in a case and I am the only one who has a key.”
When it happened again, the museum set up a time-lapse camera, and the above video caught Neb-Sanu in the act.
While Brian Cox, a professor of physics at the college, believes the rotation to be caused by subtle vibrations of hundreds of visitors each day, not everyone is convinced.
“But it has been on those surfaces since we have had it and it has never moved before. And why would it go around in a perfect circle?” asked Price.
