Brussels Manneken Pis, Belgium - Historical Icon

Art Gallery

Alongside the Rue de l'Etuve from the Musée de Costume is by far the best-known milestone in Brussels, the Manneken Pis, generally overwhelmed by a throng of tourists. Though he can be mapped out back to 1388, nothing much is known about the source of the figure of a little boy urinating, prevalently referred to as "the oldest citizen of Brussels". The Manneken is though bounded by various folklores. According to one the fountain is a memorial to a gutsy toddler who forestalled a bushfire, according to another it venerate the son of a count who surrendered to a imperative urge while taking part in a parade.
