Is there a particular one you are interested in or do you mean Bes Amulet(s) in a general sense?

A Bes amulet would be worn as a form of protection and would be placed in the home as well as worn. Bes being the protector of the home and family would have com in differing forms (playing the tamborine, sticking his tongue out, etc). He would warn off bad spirits and people.

Is this the kind of stuff you mean?

The amulets were often worn by women during pregnancy and childbirth.

According to Wilkinson the amulets from the Third Intermediate Period were mainly just the head or mask of Bes, rather than the full figure.

This sculpture amulet in the first link of the bust of the god, 2 db by 2db approximately, looks like the dwarf god at the Hathor temple of Dendera. I seemed to have confused myself with Bast, and Bes. It is good to know now who Bes is.
