In a bizarre, as-of-yet *unexplained ancient art phenomena, a statue dedicated to Osiris, the god of death, in an enclosed museum display case in Manchester, England is spinning like a top…a very, very, slow top. *(well, not conclusively)
“[Physicist Brian Cox] thinks it’s ‘differential friction,'” Price told The Daily Mail, referring to the process by which two surfaces — in this case the statue’s stone and the glass shelf, “cause a subtle vibration which is making the statuette turn.” Cox believes foot traffic or vibrations from the street outside are causing the mysterious movement, but Price refutes that theory. “It has been on those surfaces since we have had it and it has never moved before,” he said.
I’ve always thought a Pharoah’s curse involved something outside of the five elements of hip-hop. If this is all the ancient Egyptians were afraid of, yo that’s kinda funny – Ra’s got fat base lines like Russell Simmons steals money.
My best guess is that another one of the statues Stepped-up, and Osiris had to pull out some killer, thriller moves.
My advice for any statue who doesn’t want to get smoked by Osiris…
Try throwing in a windmill, it’s always impressive.
