Manneken-Pis


Manneken-Pis,  ”little man pee” in Dutch, is a landmark small bronze sculpture (61 cm) in Brussels, depicting a naked male child urinating into the basin of a fountain. It was designed by Hiëronymus Duquesnoy the Elder and set up in 1618 or 1619. The current statue dates from 1965.

Manneken-Pis is the best-known symbol of the people of Brussels. It also embodies their sense of humour (called zwanze in the Brussels dialect) and their independence of mind.

At Léon, we have a copy of our favourite little guy!
