Hello little green person. You look like a leprechaun, but you come from Ancient Egypt.
The title of this artwork from the Art Institute of Chicago is “Amulet of Pataikos“.
Just what is a Pataikos? From Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum:
The dwarf Pataikos was a protective deity … Despite their diminutive statures, Pataikos and related deities are frequently depicted as subjugators of violent natural forces — most notably, Pataikos is often shown stepping upon and grasping crocodiles, snakes, and scorpions.
Even though a leprechaun and Pataikos both have in common being a short fictional character, they are quite a contrast. A leprechaun is a trouble-maker against the Pataikos who is a protector.
Maybe Pataikos would defeat aleprechaun! That would be a fun battle to see.
BRING IT ON, LEPRECHAUN!
The Pataikos is known to strangle snakes and crocodiles. My money is on the Pataikos. But what powers does a leprechaun have in battles?
Oh man, I don’t need to be googling: Leprechaun crossover battles. But I did. The google results gets into the Leprechaun horror movies. Yuck. I don’t want to get into that world of horror.
Ah, now THIS is the article from a comic book site, “Lucky The Leprechaun Vs Thanos – Who Wins With Both at Full Power?” The article outlines Lucky the Leprechaun’s powers.
Ultimately “luck” is what makes him win. Even if the odds are 14,000,605 to 1. You still have luck to defeat the odds.
Heh. Yeah. Fun point there.
