Manneken Peace

in response to Monday Mural

Brussels
Manneken Pis... 
(meaning "Little Man Pees" in Dutch)

...is the symbol of Brussels folklore and an unmissable tourist attraction in the capital. Numerous legends have sprung up around this symbolic Brussels figure. The most commonly heard is that of a little boy who, by performing this famous call of nature, reputedly extinguished the burning fuse of a bomb destined for the Grand-Place.
