Vase in the form of Bes

Vase in the form of Bes
Attribution: that_james Vase in the form of Bes is one of several idiosyncratic artefacts depicting the unconventional dwarf god. Here he is depicted sitting down, balancing his weight on his enormous pot belly. Both of his hands clench the remnants of what used to be metal snakes. Though it does not look like a vase, and was most probably intended for decoration, there is a thick, flat rim above Bes's head.

The vase is made of pale green faience, with several features decorated with inlaid stone and glass; Bes's protruding tongue is a red stone, while his eyes -- now missing -- were once of black glass.

This Bes was a very important figure to have so many depictions of him...I wonder how a little person could gain so much attention? Image

Somethings dont add up??? How about ALOT of things do not add up? The farce has gone on long enough, the veil must be lifted so we can see.
