Especially among the simple people the shape of the Bes was very popular as a domestic protective god. He stood as a representative of a whole series of benevolent gnomelike beings who protected the private sphere and warded off malevolent demons. One particular aspect of the Bes was called 'Aha; which means 'fighter'. It can often be seen in battle with snakes or gazelles belonging to Set. Originally the dwarf being was responsible for the period of childbirth and had to protect houses from dangerous animals.
All my silver Egyptian jewellery is truly authentic. I purchase it directly from manufacturers in Cairo and it is all hallmarked.
Any questions and/or queries do please contact me and I will, of course, reply.
Thank you for looking.
