Mannekin Pis Vodka Luge
Based on the famous statue in the heart of Brussels of a little boy urinating, this is a fun piece - great fun and always gets howls of laughter when seen.
The small bronze statue was created in 1618/19 by Hieronymus Duquesnoy the Elder. This 61cm tall statue (in real life - ours is 100cm) can be found between Rue de l'Étuve/Stoofstraat and Rue du Chêne/Eikstraat in Brussels. It is set high up on a corner building and attracts a HUGE amount of tourist - all clamouring to take a picture (I must admit I have been one of these tourists too!) There is much written about this little boy - a lot that is 'just a story' but the truth is harder to come by! None-the-less, this is a great and historical statue. More famous in Europe than in the UK.
Just to let you know, we have taken a slight liberty with this Luge. The client asked for an 'over-sized' penis (compared to the original). We thought there would be no harm in doing so, so please forgive us for this slight indiscretion!
