Brussels' famous Manneken Pis statue was dressed as a doctor on Saturday to honor medical workers fighting on the frontline against the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 400-year old bronze statue, depicting a small boy urinating into a water fountain, is located in Brussels, capital of Belgium, and attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists every year.
Now, it's in a white gown and wears a protective face mask.
"This is a huge 'thank you' to all hospital staff--not just doctors and nurses--but also cleaners, all the jobs in a hospital," Marc Guebel, a member of the association that manages the statue, told Reuters.
"They have taken risks ... they have done a remarkable job," he said.
The "peeing boy" was also dressed in other outfits before, like as Santa Claus, in judo attire and a tai chi boxing outfit. It's reportedly a traditional way for Brussels to honor famous historical figures, pop stars and sports personalities, and celebrate festivals.
