Bes is the god of music and dance, the god of war and slaughter, and a destroying force of nature in Ancient Egyptian folklore...
Bes is usually portrayed as a dwarf (large head); with lion and human features.
He is bearded with his tongue sticking out.
He has a flat nose, bushy eyebrows and hair, large projecting ears.
Around his body, he wears the skin of an animal and its tail hangs down behind him and touches the ground.
He wears on his head a tiara of feathers, suggesting an African origin.
Sometimes, he is shown playing a harp.
As a warrior he wears a short military tunic and holds a shield and a short sword...
As a strangler of animals, war god, and protector of children he may have some measure of battle prowess and agility despite his diminished size.
Bes may possess shape-shifting powers that allow him to appear either as a wily, stout dwarf or as a handsome, full-grown man, as Egyptian art has depicted him in both forms.
Bes is often shown strangling snakes (like Hercules), fending off evil with a knife, or wielding the Sa-hieroglyph meaning "protection."
BES is one of the best. He is into Home Protection, Children, Music and Mirth and can even come in amulet form as a talisman against evil spirits...
