Ancient Egyptian Statue Spins on it's Own

A statue from an ancient tomb in the Manchester Museum appears to rotate on it's own while sealed inside a glass display case. Museum curators couldn't believe it, so they set up a time-lapse camera that snapped an image of the statue every minute of every day for a week.

Since the statue only moved during the day when visitors were walking past, curator Campbell Price concluded that vibrations caused by foot traffic cause it to move.

Take a look at the footage from New Day and read more on CNN.com.
