CRAP !!
Not shunned for their short stature as in other cultures, dwarfs enjoyed
high social standing in ancient Egypt, particularly during the Old Kingdom.
Thought to possess divine gifts, they were jewelers, cup-bearers for the
nobility, tailors, entertainers, government officials, and most especially
zookeepers. The Egyptians had several dwarf gods such as Bes, the protector
of households and births; and Ptah, the god of arts, crafts, and creativity.
Dwarfs were never depicted comically and received lavish funerals.
