Manneken Pis is a landmark 61 cm (24 in) bronze fountain sculpture in the center of Brussels, depicting a naked little boy urinating into the fountain’s basin. Erected in 1618 or 1619, the current statue is a replica that dates from 1965. The original is preserved in the Brussels City Museum. While Manneken Pis is one of the best-known attractions of Brussels, many tourists are taken aback by its small size.
