Infant of Prague Art Print
This option is currently sold out.
The charming statue of the Child Jesus, displayed for people to venerate in the church of Our Lady of Victory in the Lesser Town district of Prague, receives visitors from all over the world every day. People go there to pray for help, healing, or peace; some come in trust expecting the birth of a child; and many return to give thanks. The sweet face of the Child Jesus attracts visitors through its beauty. The right hand of the child is raised in blessing, while his left hand holds a sphere surmounted by a cross; the whole of our universe rests in his hands.
Saint Teresa of Avila had a great devotion to the Child Jesus, and required that all Carmelite convents or monasteries display a statue of Him for members to venerate. Saint Therese of Lisieux was so devoted to Christ's childhood that she took "of the Child Jesus" as part of her name in religion.

My painting was done in colored pencil and acrylic paint, incorporating some Czech flowers. Jesus has been very kind to me through my devotion to His childhood, and I highly recommend His help.
