• Speculations
• Facts
• The Singing Colossi of Menon

This story has been posted on the Daily mail as well as the Huffingtonpost, and it is indeed a interesting story.

The article posted on different news networks, try to move the story in a rather mysterious direction. Some referring to the curse of Tutankhamon, news gets a little bit out of hand with he fictional description in between the actual facts. 

At the Manchester museum a small statue had been standing in its place for 80 years, from the time that it was donated to the museum, until very recently, where it was moved into a glass monitor.

Suddenly people noticed that the statue had turned, and as the days passed it would turn even more... Everything from TV physicist and the curator Mr. Campbell Price placed a time lapse camera, to record the statue moving.

Some claim that it only moves in the day hours and it only turns 180 degrees...

Speculations

Some believe there is a scientific explanation for this...
While other believe that there is a spiritual explanation to it...


Fatcs

It is said to be a small statue of an ancient Egyptian named Neb-Senu, it is also said that it is an offering to the great god of the underworld, Osiris. 

It dates back to around 1800 B.C. which would mean that Neb-Senu died in the time of pharaoh Amenemhet III ruler ship which was between 1842-1797 B.C. 

This makes this relic very old, dating back to the 12 Dynasty, before Ramesses II, before Tuthmosis I, and further back. Very old.

On the back of the statue is a prayer asking for bread and beer in the underworld.


I like to dig a little deeper, but it is not easy to dig that much deeper, if the only thing you have is a small statue locked in a glass case..


But I can look at his Name, and see where this might lead me.

What does Neb-Senu Mean?


very superficial, the Word Senu, was incorporated into many pharaohs names. The pharaoh that ruled before Amenemhet II, was a king named Senusret III (1878-1841 B.C).

The word Neb, was used a lot in ancient Egypt. It means everything from good to bad. The word Neb was both used to describe an enemy in some context, but there was also a Grain God called Neb. I would think that this name of Neb belonged to the Grain section of the word. If he was a farmer, then it would be very fitting.

The word Senu is also interesting considering that Neb-Senu is seen as a name of the person, that this statue was dedicated to. 

The word Senu, means Gods. So if we put it together Neb-Senu means Grain-Gods. This off course opens up for the possibility, that it was not the person's name, but maybe the God that the offering was for. 

When we consider the prayer for bread and beer, then it is indeed something that you would pray to the Grain Gods for, because in ancient Egypt the Beer was also made from Grain, so both would go under the Grain-Gods.


These two pharaohs that I have mentioned here, are
Pyramid Builders.
On another note.

The Singing Colossi of Menon


I just have to share this with you. 

The ancient Egyptians ability to work the lands material, is remarkable. Everything from the sandstone block to granite blocks all way to manipulating with the earths strongest material, known as deriot.

On the way to the Valley of the Kings, people usually stop to see the gigantic Menon statues. People stop up for 5 min and take their pictures, and I have not seen one person notice the real architectural construction of these statues.


They go beyond what meets the eye...

What people are missing when they only spend 5 min there, is the real beauty of its creation. They build these colossi's in such a magnificent way, that when the winds hits from certain angles, a musical sound is created hereby making the statues sing in more beautiful notes than normal. 

It was said in the older days, that these great colossi's of Menon would sing towards the two horizons.

One should not underestimate the ability of our most ancient ancestors, for they have proven time and time again, that they were able to construct these gigantic monuments, and they also stand the real test of time itself.

We can't say that today...
