Though my memory on this is hazy, I think it was a low budget horror film or TV movie from the late 70’s/early 80s. It may have been a mummy movie or something to do with Egypt/curses. Towards the end, a group of people are in a boat with ill-gotten treasure. An idol they have – which is small and Buddha-like – horrifyingly begins breathing. I think it gets thrown overboard. Any ideas?
