We have a lot of pew polishing to do this week, so today we have a short question to answer.
Hi ... I am in search of a statue of the baby infant of prague...my grandmother had one that was under a glass dome screwed to a brown wooden plate it was porcelain and the robe had a velvety touch.
My goodness! Ebay! It depends on how much you want to spend on the statue. You can go to any religious goods store online. Does he have to be under a glass dome?
Here's a little information on the Infant of Prague. Have a quick read. I'll wait.
Okay, so you can get anything from a little statue made of plastic or plaster (which means he'll always be in his traditional red cape rendered in plastic), to the fancy in kind that is just like the original and you change the little outfits. I actually have one of the former, and now we also have a little plaster one with a removable cloth cape. We just leave it on him. It's always chilly in our house because California houses are not insulated.Or you can spring for an more full size statue with all his different outfits. Outfits sold separately.
You could conceivably get one like mine with a removable cape and then make a velour one and replace the doll clothes one. The one we have is made from whatever that stuff is out of which doll clothes are made. But it does have a nice sort of white lace like trim on it.
Since you clearly know how to use the internet, just google "Infant of Prague Statue". There is one in a dome on Ebay as we speak, but it's a pricey one. There are many, many others at very affordable price points.
A very holy Holy Week to everyone. We'll post between polishing if we can.
