Ancient Egyptian talisman of weird bug-eyed god discovered by archaeologists.
A newly identified googly-eyed artifact may have been used by the ancient Egyptians to magically protect children and pregnant mothers from evil forces.

Made of faience, a delicate material that contains silica, the pale-green talisman of sorts dates to sometime in the first millennium B.C. It shows the dwarf god Bes with his tongue sticking out, eyes googly, wearing a crown of feathers. A hole at the top of the face was likely used to suspend it like a bell, while a second hole, used to hold the bell clapper, was apparently drilled into it in antiquity.

Mainstream Egyptologists say it's "dwarf", but actually it looks A LOT like some sort of amphibian creature. The artifact was carefully crafted to highlight scales below the head of the creature. This is no fucking dwarf!! Reminds me of the creature Dagon in "Conan The Destroyer", when it starts shapeshifting.

Re: Ancient Egyptian talisman of weird bug-eyed god discovered by archaeologists.
It is indeed a classic representation of the dwarf god Bes, patron of childbirth.

He is bearded, and the 'scales' or 'gills' seen are the top of his beard.

Search for other images of the Egyptian god Bes to see other complete images.
