Catalogue for the exhibition Bes. Demon God – Protector of Egypt, Glyptoteket, 2021
The demon god Bes was above all a protector of Egypt, as manifested in a variety of ways over the ages. This publication takes a closer look at the themes of the exhibition Bes. Demon God – Protector of Egypt. Who was Bes? What role did he play in sexuality, as a musician or alongside other gods? And why was he so popular in Nubia, Egypt’s southern neighbour?
