A 10-inch stature of the Egyptian God Osiris has been filmed at a Manchester Museum spinning on it's own. Yes, moving by itself. Over several days, the ten-inch Egyptian statuette gradually rotates to face the rear of the locked glass cabinet in which it is displayed, and has to be turned around again by hand.

The statuette’s slow about-turn has been captured on film by a time-lapse camera, and curator Campbell Price, 29, says he believes there may be a spiritual explanation.

‘I noticed one day that it had turned around,’ he said. ‘I thought it was strange because it is in a case and I am the only one who has a key.

‘I put it back, but then the next day it had moved again.

Interestingly, there is a prayer on the back of the statue that reads "bread, beer, oxen and fowl'.
