Campbell is urging members of the public to come along and take a look for themselves. “It would be great if someone could solve the mystery

You're suggesting that it is impossible because it is in a locked, glass case. Implying that there must be some other explanation. I interpreted that to mean supernatural explanations.

 

It could be tampered with at night. Maybe you could stick a low-friction pad or gel under the statue to make it spin and move when vibrations were experienced outside the glass, for example.

 

 

Essentially, what is more likely: this has a rational explanation, e.g. a stunt/hoax, or the statue has become sentient and is spinning on its own?

 

Sorta.

 

I'm not suggesting it is supernatural, just don't think something under it moving it and I don't think someone is moving it.


It's time lapsed meaning they can cut out the parts where they go in and move it. My money is on it being moved by someone, them being cut out of the vid, or the vibrations from all the visitors during the day, as it doesn't seem to show it moving during after hours. 

 

That makes sense. Not let's see if the call on the public to come look solves anything.

Is it possible footsteps can cause a statue to rotate in a perfect manner? I thought it would be all over the place.

Obviously it's the vibration moving it around... Why don't they put a non-slip mat underneath it? :p

duct tape :shifty:
