Jeanneke Pis, Brussels

Jeanneke Pis, Brussels

The Jeanneke Pis or “Little Girl Peeing” is a modern statue and fountain that was designed to serve as a counter to the famous Manneken Pis (Little Man Peeing). While Manneken Pis dates back to 1619, it took several hundred years for the female version to appear. The statue measure approximately a half-meter high and was made out of blue-grey limestone by artist Denis-Adrien Debouvrie. The piece was started in 1985 and erected in this location in 1987. The Jeanneke Pis carries the same face of contentment as the Manneken Pis. The Jeanneke Pis has not been embraced as warmly as her male counterpart and some say her presence is tolerated, rather than embraced like the Manneken Pis. It is believed that throwing your coin in the fountain will ensure your deepest wish is granted.
