Still and The Living: Brussels (Bruxelles), Belgium

Manneken Pis is a landmark small bronze sculpture in Brussels, depicting a naked little boy urinating into a fountain’s basin. It was designed by Hiëronymus Duquesnoy the Elder and put in place in 1618 or 1619. The current statue is a copy which dates from 1965. -Wikipedia

Right in front of the Finance Tower, one finds this sculpture of two females embracing. In individualistic Belgian fashion, this is rather an evocative and erotically-themed sculpture.
