Curse of the mummy? ET phoning home? Many people think the statue “spinning” is caused by the vibrations of the visitors, but the museum pointed out that’s not the case.
On their exhibit blog, they stated:
“The cause may be subtle vibrations from footfall or traffic outside, but the statuette has been on a glass shelf in about the same place in the gallery for decades and has never moved before – and none of the other objects in the case move in any way.”
