Egyptian Gods awakened?

Continuing the Ancient Egypt theme.
Here's an excerpt from an article about a moving statue in Manchester Museum:

Statuette no. 9325 doesn't appear to go by any proper name. It's a prefabricated figure -- an off-the-shelf product -- that was placed into a small tomb around 1800 B.C.

A private collector in Britain donated it to the museum in 1933. The inscription on the back, requesting a sacrifice of beer, bread and animals, was a standard prayer for the deceased.

For decades, the figurine stood perfectly still -- until museum workers moved its case a few feet from its original position.

In February, curator Campbell Price noticed something curious was afoot.

The statue seemed to have slightly turned.

When he looked next, it was facing another direction. A day later, another.

The turns were subtle. But at the end of each day, you could tell the statue was angled differently.

I like everything supernatural and love to write about it, but I am more than sure this has to do with physics. And still, it's fascinating. Physics has always been somehting incredible to me. Love it. And love mysteries.

So what is this? An ancient curse? Or have the Egyptian Gods been awakened?
