    I found this chalkware (polychrome?!) statue at the flea market in Germany, it is a heavy one and 35'' tall. The monk keeps in his hands the rest of what probably was a wooden cross. On the top of his head, is an anti bird spike, which makes me think that the statue was somewhere on a wall outside of a church, or a cathedral maybe. If you have any more ideas about it, they are welcomed.

      Looks like Mon key business to me. Sorry I couldn't resist being a wise ass.
