The Infant Jesus of Prague or Child of Prague is a 16th-century Roman Catholic wax-coated wooden statue of child Jesus located in the Church of Our Lady Victorious in Malá Strana, Prague, Czech Republic. The statue of Infant Jesus is ornate with his left hand holding a golden orb symbolizing kingship and the right hand raised with the palm in a blessing posture.

Rich and intricate, this compact composition is also bright, colorful and breathtakingly beautiful. 

Tanjore painting is a classical South Indian painting style, which was inaugurated from the town of Thanjavur (anglicized as Tanjore) in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, India. The art form draws its sources and inspiration from about 1600 AD, a period when the leaders of Thanjavur encouraged all forms of art.

Tanjore paintings are panel paintings done on cloth pasted over a wooden base. The paintings are decorated by gilded and gem-set technique, where 22 ct gold leaves & sparkling tanjore stones are used to highlight and create a 3D relief effect on certain aspects of the painting like ornaments, dresses etc. to give the painting an ornate look.

In Tanjore paintings one can see the influence of Deccani, Vijayanagar, Maratha and even European styles of painting. Both religious and secular subjects are depicted in Tanjore paintings.
