We were in Brussels for the day with our friend Patty and decided to stop by the famous Manneken Pis. Because they were having a motorcycle convention in the Grand Place, he was dressed in a biker outfit. This bronze statuette, executed in the 17th century by J. Duquesnoy the elder, embodies the irreverent spirit of Brussels. Also known as the “Little Julian”, by confusion with another fountain in Juliaensborreke, it was one of the many fountains serving the city. It has been provided with many costumes and decorations, the wardrobe has about 800 rooms, recently reshaped at the City Museum of Brussels. The oldest known outfit was offered by the Elector of Bavaria in 1698.
