From Wikipedia:

The Infant Jesus of Prague is a 16th-century wax-coated wooden statue of the Child Jesus holding a globus cruciger pf Spanish origin, now located in the Discalced Carmelite Church of Our Lady of Victories in Mala Stana, Prague, Czech Republic. First appearing in 1556, pious legends claim that the statue once belonged to Teresa of Avila.

The image is routinely clothed by the Carmelite nuns in luxurious fabrics with imperial regalia and a golden crown while his left hand holds a globus cruciger and the right hand raised in a gesture of benediction.
