Ancient wax sculpture from the early 20th century depicting the Holy Infant Jesus of Prague. The work, of outstanding craftsmanship, is an absolute rarity and is in excellent general condition. Completely made by hand from a single block of wax. The image is object of great devotion because of its miraculous reputation and has received several Papal honours: Leo XIII founded the Congregation of the Infant Jesus of Prague in 1896, Pius X established the Brotherhood of the Infant Jesus of Prague in 1913 and, more recently, Benedict XVI donated a golden crown on the occasion of his apostolic visit to the Czech Republic in September 2009. A one-of-a-kind lot.
