The astonishing fame enjoyed by Manneken-Pis is inversely proportional to his size. However, as surprising as this may seem, his story is still largely unknown. During which period did the statue first appear? When did he receive his first costumes? When was he first used to symbolise that mischievous and irreverent spirit that the inhabitants of Brussels have claimed for themselves?
