People read the article again and you will find:

"Bemused staff installed a camera to take a picture of the 1800BC statue every minute for a week — the spooky time-lapsed film shows it turning through 360 degrees.

so it takes a whole week to do a turn?

Here's a photo of the monitoring equipment under the statuette (dated 8th May)

and here's his article on the experiment The mystery of the spinning statuette (II) (20th June)

Quote

Several months ago, we noticed that one of our Middle Kingdom statuettes was spinning around imperceptibly slowly in its new case in our Egyptian Worlds gallery. We set up a time lapse camera to take one image every minute for a week. This is the result.
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. A mystery? See for yourself.

Wow, and this from the first article!

Quote

The intriguing suggestion that the statuette was carved of steatite and then fired may imply that it it now vulnerable to magnetic forces. But is so, why did it not move on its glass shelf in pretty much the same position in the old Egyptian Afterlife gallery?

Soapstone

Quote

Soapstone (also known as steatite or soaprock) is a talc-schist, which is a type of metamorphic rock. It is largely composed of the mineral talc and is thus rich in magnesium. It is produced by dynamothermal metamorphism and metasomatism, which occurs in the areas where tectonic plates are subducted, changing rocks by heat and pressure, with influx of fluids, but without melting. It has been a medium for carving for thousands of years.

This is just the place for meteoritic fluid dark matter to find it's way into the soft rock! What a prediction..

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

The mystery of the moving rocks in Death Valley could also be solved by their soapstone/fluid-dark-matter make-up. The Sliding Rocks of Racetrack Playa

WO! Here's the evidence which fits like a glove Geology of the Death Valley area

Quote

The exposed geology of the Death Valley area presents a diverse and complex set of at least 23 formations of sedimentary units, two major gaps in the geologic record called unconformities, and at least one distinct set of related formations geologists call a group. The oldest rocks in the area that now includes Death Valley National Park are extensively metamorphosed by intense heat and pressure and are at least 1700 million years old. These rocks were intruded by a mass of granite 1400 Ma (million years ago) and later uplifted and exposed to nearly 500 million years of erosion.
It's similar to the formation of soapstone!

The base of the statue might not be as flat as the other statues, and so with the slightest vibration its effected, I have a similar thing happen with remote controls on my coffee table one has an odd shape base and shakes with the slightest vibration where as the others don't.

Aha! I was going wondering about that. First they said serpentine, which is related to talc, now they outright say soapstone. Soapstone, like it's name implies, is slippery.

They're shorter but not necessarily smaller. Think of it as the difference between a a block of metal and a metal tuning fork of equal mass. They're both the same material but one will resonate freely and the other won't. The various statues are also different types of stone which effects their resonant frequency.

The real question is what's changed in the local environment to make it just start happening recently?

Okay, disregard the size stuff. I couldn't tell the size of the others from the long shots. I can see it better now in the links Ring posted. Same idea though.

I find it completely "awesome" that a thread about a small stone statue "moving" is gathering more attention than issues that actually matter :td:

Hopefully it'll get bored of spinning on the spot soon and do something worth watching, like a star jump...

Oh seeder :no: , if I have to explain what should be talked about instead of you just knowing whats more important, this world is in worse shape than I thought... This "statue" has gotten more threads and attention in the last day than even Iran's new president... it's sad :hmm:
