Ugly

I do love these wee guys - but they are definitely ugly!

They are a row of representations of the Egyptian God Bes - whose responsibilies included pregant women and new born babies!

Great choice!
Thank you 😊
He is fun. Where did you take the photo?
At the British Museum- it's above a doorway near the Rosetta Stone. It made me think of a bunch of drunken dwarves on a stag night!

they look like they're celebrating st patrick's

Re: ; ))

They always make me think of a group of drunken dwarves😊

Re: ; ))

LOL
yes, like that..
I'm not surprised that they are responsible for pregnant women, as they obviously have the necessary equipment!
They do indeed!
They are indeed ugly!
Aren't they just!
What a quaint group! They look very tribal to me, more Polynesian than Egyptian.
They do, don't they, as if they are totally out of place only feet from the Rosetta Stone - I think it is why, of all the things in the Egyptian collection,they really caught my eye.
