BELGIUM ~Manneken Pis~

And another nice Belgian card from Johan with our famous "Manneken Pis"... He is one of the main attractions in our capital Brussels, but I must admit that a lot of people are disappointed when they see him.... the statue is really, really small...
With great first cancellations of new stamps issued on 20-09-2010... Heel erg bedankt Johan!!

Manneken Pis is a famous Brussels landmark. It is a small bronze fountain sculpture depicting a naked little boy urinating into the fountain's basin. It was designed by Jerome Duquesnoy and put in place in 1618 or 1619.
