The craziest statue in Brussels? In any case, it will not fail to make you smile. 

Indeed, we see the Vaartkapoen (the rascal of the canal) emerging from a sewer and tripping a Brussels police officer.  Made in 1985, you will find it at Place Sainteclette, along the Brussels canal.

Tom Frantzen: his name may not mean anything to you, but you may know some of his works.Indeed, this Brussels sculptor, originally from the town of Watermael-Boitsfort, is the author of numerous statues in the capital. Surprising, even sometimes confusing, you can admire them in the streets of Brussels, as well as in other cities in Belgium, and even as far as Japan.

There is another one not far from the African Museum in Tervueren outside Brussels which is also funny !

 A rather special fountain !


  1. Both those statues are fantastic. It's good to have something to raise a smile.

  2. Love them both, but the fountain is my favorite. Brilliant.

    Have a fabulous day, Gattina. ♥

  3. I love those! Yes indeed, they are giggle worthy!
