Brussels most visited site together with Grand Place is the Manneken Pis. Many travellers are also familiar with Jeaneke Pis, but almost nobody knows that Bruxellers installed another sculpture with the same (pissing) idea.
It’s the Zinneke, a dog! Zinneke in Brussels dialect means someone of mixed origins, symbolizing the mixture of populations living in Brussels.
To me this sculpture is a funny spot to show to friends, a laugh, a way to explain Brussels. And if you are lucky, walking along the street you may find the original dog model for the sculpture: his owner Mark lives in the neighborhood!
