Here's a sweet Infant Jesus of Prague in porcelain

He's wearing a red robe and holding a sacred orb with his 2 fingers held in the devotional symbol of peace.This little guy is trimmed out in gold and he stands 6" tall. He would make an awesome toothbrush holder too!

He'd look pretty handsome sitting on your sunny windowsill filled with wildflowers or perhaps you like a more traditional floral display; either way, The Infant Jesus of Prague will be a blessed addition to any room in your home or workspace.

Here's some interesting information about Prague's famous sacred infant: who's earliest history can be traced back to the year 1628 when a small, 48 centimeters in height, exquisite statue of wax Infant Jesus was brought into Bohemia by Princess Polyxena von Lobkowicz, who became greatly attached to the Discalced Carmelites.

The princess had been given the statue as a wedding gift by her mother, Maria Manriquez de Lara of Spain, and the statue was given to the Carmelites in Prague. Upon presenting it, the pious princess is said to have uttered a prophetic statement to the religious: "Venerable Fathers, I bring you my dearest possession. Honour this image and you shall never want". The statue was placed in the oratory of the monastery of Our Lady of Victory, Prague, where special devotions to Jesus were offered before it twice a day. The Carmelite novices voluntarily became poor and professed their poverty fervently during devotions in the presence of the Divine Infant.

Upon hearing of the Carmelites' devotions and needs, the Emperor Ferdinand II of the House of Habsburg sent along 2,000 Florins and a monthly stipend for their support.
