Hair

Hairy.

This seems to have inspired some wonderful dog pictures. I do know a dog with beautiful hair - she belongs to my Mum and is my regular walking companion. But I wanted something a bit different. So I took my camera to a field where I had seen highland cattle - but they'd moved.

But then Brutti-ma-Buonni posted her hairy gentlemen sculptures - and I remembered, da - da... This!

I give you nekkid bearded dwarves cutting their own hair with swords!!

Um....

Actually, due to the wonders of LJ friendships, I know they are actually Egyptian bas relief showing the God Bes who was the protector of women in childbirth. Which might explain the 'what?' - but it certainly doesn't explain the 'why?'!! And isn't the mini-Bes version, on the left, cute?



OK - I couldn't resist -

Glad to have inspired this! Bes is hilariously appropriate.
Isn't he/they? Although I still can't quite see what he can have to do with childbirth... unless it was to scare the poor woman into action.

One look at those guys and the poor baby was probably bracing themselves against the walls refusing to come out!!
i'd say "from the sublime to the ridiculous," but I think it's the other way round. *g*
It is rather, isn't it? Although small dog is not always sublime....
I think you get the prize for the funniest use of the prompt. Pretty dog, but the "dwarfs" are hysterical.
Aren't they wonderful? When I spotted them I just stood and gawped! They were up inn a fairly high corner of an Egyptian Gallery with n real explanation at all - and I just wanted to stare - and laugh.
Aww, the dog is simply darling.

Egyptians didn't seem to have the concept of cute and cuddly.
The dog is my mother's constant companion - and is really rather sweet.

The Egyptian guys though - they made me think 'Gimli'!
