Many years ago in my early twenties, I was visiting Brussels and saw the Manneken pis statute. The group I was traveling with was quite intrigued by this statute. We looked at it for quite a while.
And to think that it was erected back in the 15th century. Imagine all the people who have walked through the square and stopped to look at the statute and the many different thoughts that passed through their minds.
Unfortunately, I have never seen the Jeanneke Pis. I wonder why the female version wasn't placed in a public square where people pass through regularly?
The two statues could be symbolic for any number of ideas. Everyone probably has their own interpretation. Or, in the beginning, the manneken pis could have been be created just for fun and enjoyment.
