The statue, in finely hand-painted resin, depicts the Infant Jesus of Prague standing on a silver-colored pedestal rich in decorations.
He is in a blessing position, wears a large crown on his head and holds the crucigerous globe in his hand. This devotion is linked to St. Teresa of Avila: Princess Polissena, on the occasion of the saint's death, donated a waxen figurine of the Child to the Discalced Carmelites of the Prague Convent, in luxurious clothes and intent on blessing. The representation, very popular in Spain, did not take long to spread first among the novices and then in other parts of the world.
The little one wears, in fact, dark red royal robes, decorated with gold-colored embroidery and embellished with crochet sleeves and collar. This small 12 cm statue of the Infant Jesus of Prague is accompanied by a paper bookmark dedicated to him; the front reproduces the image of the statuette, while the back shows a prayer in Italian, English, Spanish and French.
The product is enclosed in a refined gift box of light brown smooth cardboard, very resistant and equipped with a plastic part that, like a showcase, allows you to admire the contents.
The front part of the box shows the same prayer that you find on the bookmark, while on the other sides you can read, again in the four languages ??mentioned above, some hints relating to the history of this devotion. The attention to detail and the mastery in the coloring of the garments and finishes, as well as the elegance of the box, make this small statue of the Infant Jesus of Prague a welcome gift idea.
