Identifying a Chalkware Monk Statue


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.

I have tried searching other ways to find this statue and there is actually nothing online. Maybe if you took the statue to a Catholic church in your area one of the priests there maybe able to give you some more information on this. Normally these types of statues in Europe were found in Catholic churches.
