Bes, the Protector

Bes (also called Bisu) was the dwarf god and the protector god against all evil. He was shown face on, which was extremely rare in Ancient Egypt, with a beard/lion’s mane, a broad face and sometimes he was sticking out his tongue! He wore either a panther skin or a lion skin and tail. He was worshipped as a household god, without any temples dedicated to him, but he was shown in the temples of Thebes. As a household god, he doesn’t have any myths written about him (at least not that I can find).
