This is a copy of the famous 1619 sculpture "Manneken Pis" by Jerome Duquesnoy located in Brussels. Legends say that inspiration for creation of the piece arouse from a small boy that went missing from the local market. A panicked mother recruited the entire town including the mayor to search for the missing boy. At last he was found peeing in a garden. As a tribute to all who helped in the search, the family of the boy had the sculpture commissioned and dedicated to all the towns people who helped.

How It's Made
Cast in Lost Wax Bronze

The lost wax bronze casting method is a labor intensive process which is considered to be the best for capturing the finest details of an artist's original sculpture. Typically, a wax replica of the original is made and then dipped in liquid ceramic in order to create a ceramic mold. Once cured, the ceramic shell is kiln-fired and as the shell bakes, the wax inside melts and is lost from the shell (thus the term lost wax). After the ceramic shell is removed from the heat, molten bronze metal is poured into it to create the final casting.

Once the casting has cooled, the outer ceramic layer is broken away, revealing the bronze sculpture inside. A patina may be applied to obtain the desired colorization. And finally, wax is applied to add protection to the lustrous patina.

There are other techniques and variations of the lost wax casting process, but they all involve the loss of the wax mold implied in the term 'lost wax'.
