Reviews about Manneken Pis


Reviewed on 19 Oct 2017

Urinary children are the market mark in Brussels, Belgium. The world-famous bronze statue of the little boy is a statue and fountain in the pedestrian area of the city centre. Legend has it that when the Spanish occupiers evacuated Brussels, they planned to blow up the city with explosives. Fortunately, the little boy urinated at night and drowned the fuse to save the whole city. The statue was carved in memory of the little hero. After hundreds of years of vicissitudes, Brussels was burned by foreign enemies and plundered by two modern world wars. The statue itself was stolen and destroyed many times. In 1619, the latest bronze was built smaller than the statue. It was created by Belgian sculptor Jerome Duksino. It is estimated that many people have heard the story of urinating children, and know that Brussels has such a sculpture, but many people (I am one of them) did not expect that the statue is so small, and in a small corner, it is easy to be ignored. Fortunately, his fame is so great that people will find him here eventually. In 1747, Louis XV of France dressed him for the sake of elegance. Then he received clothes from all walks of life around the world, including China, of course. The King's House near the square has hundreds of clothes for urinating children from all over the country. In front of the shops in Brussels, we can also see various fake versions of children urinating in order to attract customers. The last picture is a urinating child in Tang costume on display at the Belgian Pavilion of the 2010 Shanghai World Expo.
