The artist also created ?Madame Chapeau? in the Rue du Midi, the ?Vaartkapoen? at the Place de l’Yser and Bill & Boule in Jette. There’s more of him all over the world: Tervuren, Steenokkerzeel, Japan… This ‘Zinneke? (street dog, to be thrown into the ‘Little Zenne’), completes Manneke a,d Jeanneke Pis.
