Bes was shown as a dwarf. He, with his consort Tauert, were two of the most common domestic gods. They were considered domestic gods in that they did not have a group of priest or temples at which they were worshiped. Instead, they were normally worshiped at simple shrines in the houses of the common Egyptians. Tauert is usually shown as a pregnant hippopotamus and is the goddess of fertility and child birth.
