Belgium - Brussels - Manneken-Pis

Manneken-Pis (1619).

Sent by zoeza from Belgium.

This is from Wikipedia : Manneken Pis (Dutch for little man urinating), also known in French as the petit Julien, is a famous Brussels landmark. It is a small bronze fountain sculpture depicting a naked little boy urinating into the fountain's basin. It was designed by Jerome Duquesnoy and put in place in 1618 or 1619. It bears a similar cultural significance as Copenhagen's Little Mermaid.
