Manneken Pis (pronounced [ˌmɑnəkə(m) ˈpɪs]); Dutch for '"Little Pissing Man"') is a landmark 61 cm (24 in) bronze fountain sculpture in the centre of Brussels (Belgium), depicting a naked little boy urinating into the fountain's basin. It was designed by Jérôme Duquesnoy the Elder [nl; fr] and put in place in 1618 or 1619. The current statue is a replica which dates from 1965. The original is kept in the Brussels City Museum. Manneken Pis is the best-known symbol of the people of Brussels. It also embodies their sense of humour (called zwanze in the dialect of Brussels) and their independence of mind.
