In the early 1600s, Manneken Pis was erected in Brussels, and the fountain of the little boy peeing - and the water coming out his petit pee-pee - became an instant landmark and cultural icon. Now 350 years later, the city decided it needed some gender equality, and commissioned a sculptor to create a female counterpart. In 1987, the Jeanneke Pis was unveiled: a blue-grey limestone statue of a little girl with pigtails in squat position, urinating, a mischievous look planted on her face. Like her brother, she became an instant classic; recently, the fountain has had to be protected by iron bars because of vandalism.
