BRUSSELS, BELGIUM: 2 FEMALE NUDES EMBRACING

This larger than life sculpture is located in front of the Finance Tower in the center of Brussels. I believe the sculptor is from Milan, Italy. ” ‘Fonderia D’Arte De Andreis, Milano’ (Milan, Italy). And an engraved inscription gives a name that appears to be ‘Nat Helligan’, and the apparent dates 1952-1984. ” https://www.flickr.com/photos/22325431@N05/4038175688

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM: MANNEKEN PIS

There are many myths about this little ‘rebel of Brussels,’ but my favorite is the one that claims he is Duke Godrey lll of Leuven and as a 2-year old Lord, his troops put him in a basket and hung him in a tree for encouragement. The enemy troops of Berthout walked by and he urinated on them. Berthout eventually lost the battle.
