Mannenkenpis- The Peeing Little Fellow

October 19, 2011 by Modellist-ID

A whimsical piece of sculpture created by Jerome Duquesnoy in 1619, this is one of the cutest attractions in Brussels. The little guy is peeing in a fountain. Its keepers dress it up in all kinds of costumes, which change frequently. Thousands of visitors muse at it each year. It’s also been the target of vandals and invaders. This city just wouldn’t be the same without it!

Address: Corner of Rue de l’ Etuve and Rue du Chêne, Brussels
