Yes, the C Major Barre Chord. 8 10 10 9 8 8 (from E to e)
x35553
x x 10 12 13 12
x32013

These would be different voicings of this chord if you didn't know. You could also do inversions.

+ much

Chords are not made of shapes or numbers, they are made of notes. There are just different ways to arrange the notes, hence the different chord shapes and such. I would also highly recommend musictheory.net

Its arguable whether they sound the same. C barred sounds totally different than an open C.

Hence the reason you can play Jane Says with barred G and Barred A, but not open G and open A.

All those different arrangements of the notes in a chord are called "inversions".
Part of the trick of arranging is finding which inversions sound best for a particular tune.
