Madonna and Child

I spotted these Madonna and Child statues everywhere in Belgium, especially in the cities. They're just there, jutting out of buildings, flat buildings I presume... some of them more elaborate than others (e.g. lit up or strewn with flowers). I found them simply fascinating to say the least. And after doing some research, I found out a Madonna and Child statue created by the one and only Michaelangelo sits in one of the churches in Bruges (which we unfortunately didn't see, boo us). Could this be a reason why different versions of the statue can be seen everywhere?
