Manneken Pis

Manneken-Pis was at first a fountain that played an essential role in the former distribution of drinking water since the 15th century. The system was well-known in all of Europe.

Towards the end of the 17th century, the statue became more and more important in the city life.
It was also a survivor of the bombardment of Brussels in 1695.

Manneken-Pis became a precious good and enjoys a ceaselessly growing glory.

During big events, we adorn him with luxurious clothes. We know that in the 18th century, Manneken-Pis was dressed at least 4 times a year. Since he lost his main function in the network of water conveyance of the City in the 19th century, Manneken-Pis gradually became an image and symbol of the Brussels folklore, the joy of the inhabitants and their capacity of self-mockery.

Manneken Pis is the most famous fountain of Brussels. It is literally “the kid who pees.”
There are many versions of her story. See History and origin of Manneken Pis AND History of Manneken Pis told by himself

The current statue was made by Jerome Duquesnoy in 1619.
Size: 55,5cm
