Ancient Egyptian statue caught on camera rotating on its own

MANCHESTER, England - A statue in a museum in England has created a buzz after it was captured on video rotating on its own.

The 10-inch tall Ancient Egyptian statue of Neb-senu has been on display at the Manchester Museum in Manchester, England, for 80 years but it was only recently that museum staff noticed the statue moving, according to ABC News.

"Most Egyptologists are not superstitious people. I wondered who had changed the object's position without telling me," the museum's curator, Campbell Price, told the U.K.'s Sun. "But the next time I looked, it was facing in another direction-and a day later had yet another orientation."

Price set up a time-lapse video to catch the statue rotating.

The statue is housed inside a glass case and no one is able to touch it.
