can you name this Catholic statue?

I have seen this statue at several Catholic Churches and shrines. The statue looks like a child dressed as a King. He always has on a crown and a cloak. Does anyone know the name of this statue? I am curious as to why I see it a lot but know nothing about it.

  • We have one that used to belong to my grandmother. No offense, I hope, but I've always thought it was one of the ugliest things I'd ever seen. LoL.

  • I am familiar with it by sight, but I always though it looked kind of creepy.

  • I was drawn to this statue. It is intriguing. I can't explain it but it raises the emotions like the above poster said to her it is kind of creepy. It stirs some sort of emotion.

  • I had never really thought about it but I've passed the road signs for the National Shrine for the Infant of Prague, in Prague, OK probably 500+ times in my life... but we we're catholic so i've never seen it.
