Egyptian Security God

God of Domestic Protection

Appearances can be so deceptive. Although seen as a repulsive shabbily clad bandy-legged dwarf, 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.

Every home should have a BES to protect against misfortune. There’s also a female version called BESET.
