On 31 May, the iconic and world-famous Manneken-Pis statue in Brussels wore his new costume of Asterix.

Manneken-Pis, the symbol of Brussels folklore, gets a costume at major events. Yesterday he celebrated the opening of the exhibition Astérix chez les Belges at the Belgian Comic Strip Center.

The Asterix comic strips was created by the French writer Rene Goscinny (1926-1977) and illustrator Albert Uderzo (b.1920), also French, and first appeared in the Franco-Belgian comics magazine Pilote in 1959.

The Manneken Pis (meaning "Little man Pee, in Dutch), also known as Petit Julien, is a landmark, 61 cm tall bronze sculpture, depicting a naked little boy urinating into a fountain's basin.

It was designed by Hiëronymus Duguesnoy the Elder, and put in place in 1618 or 1619. It replaced the original version from 1388. The statue is at the junction of Rue de l'Étuve / Stoofstraat and Rue du Chêne / Eikstraa.
