Manneken Pis: A Symbol of Defiance and Joy in the Heart of Brussels The Manneken Pis, or 'Little Man Peeing,' is a legendary landmark and a cherished symbol of the city of Brussels, Belgium. This photograph, captured in the 1910s, offers a glimpse into the past, showcasing the iconic statue in all its historical glory. The Manneken Pis, believed to have been created in the 15th century, is a small bronze fountain sculpture depicting a young boy urinating into a basin. The story behind the statue's creation is shrouded in myth and legend, with some believing it was made to celebrate the end of a siege or to ward off an impending invasion. Regardless of its origins, the Manneken Pis quickly became a beloved symbol of the city and a must-see attraction for visitors. Throughout history, the Manneken Pis has undergone various transformations, with different costumes and accessories added to the statue to mark special occasions and celebrations. In this photograph, the statue stands bare, a reminder of its simple yet enduring charm. The Manneken Pis is not just a tourist attraction, but a source of pride for the people of Brussels. It represents the city's resilience, its sense of humor, and its unyielding spirit. Despite the many changes that have occurred in the city over the centuries, the Manneken Pis remains a constant presence, a reminder of Brussels' rich history and cultural heritage. This photograph, taken in the 1910s, offers a glimpse into the past, capturing the essence of the Manneken Pis and the spirit of Brussels. It is a testament to the enduring power of history and the importance of preserving the past for future generations.
