Ancient Egyptian statue moving in a Manchester museum?

Ancient Egyptian statue moving in a Manchester museum?

We’re very familiar with moving statues in Ireland and now a Manchester museum is encountering the same ‘problem’. It seems a 4,000 year old statue from Egypt has decided to start moving, rotating 180 degrees over the course of a few days.

The entire process was captured on film (see below) and the statue definitely appears to be move.
Theories range from the plausible (gentle vibrations caused by traffic noise) to the more far-fetched (the statue itself wishing the visitors to the Manchester Musuem to read the inscription on the back).
The statue, known as Neb-Senu, has been in the museum for over 80 years but it began moving in February according to the museum’s Egyptologist Campbell Price.
In April they set up a camera and over three days captured the movement. They have now posted the clip online looking for help in solving the mystery.
Whatever the reason, we suspect that the museum is certainly set to have a busy summer.
