Pale green, matte surface faience, Janus-headed amulet of Bes, the Egyptian dwarf god who functioned primarily as a protector of mothers, children, and especially women during the treacherous process of childbirth. In this substantial figurine, designed to be worn as a pendant, the deity wears his typical feathered headdress and confrontational facial expression while grasping his pot belly and striking an akimbo stance. With his characteristically fierce attitude, this apotropaic divinity provokes the same disconcerting response today that he was intended to inspire at the time of his creation. Height: 2".
