Geocache Description:


Dansk Manneken Pis i Bogense

Den lille figur er en kopi af den originale statue (1619) i Bruxelles og har en spændende historie.

I det 19. århundrede blev et spædbarn fundet på færgen fra Klakring. Da ingen af passagererne ville vedkende sig barnet, tog slagter Levinsohn drengen i pleje, og senere blev drengen adopteret af Levonsohns datter. Drengen Willum Fønss voksede op i Bogense og fik, efter nogle år i udlandet, titel af konsul. Konsulen var Bogense dybt taknemmelig, og den 20. marts 1934 afslørede hans datter, Baronesse Rosenkrantz, den lille statue af Manneken, hvis historie man kunne sammenligne med konsulens. Dengang var den lille nøgne dreng ikke populær hos alle i byen - og nogle ville gerne have givet ham bukser på hver dag.

Nutildags er Manneken i Bogense dog meget populær hos lokale såvel som turister. Ved specielle lejligheder bliver Manneken Pis klædt ud.

English Manneken Pis in Bogense

The Manneken Pis in Bogense is a copy of the Jerome du Quesnoy (1619) sculpture in Brussels.

In the 19th century, a baby was found on the ferry from Klakring. The chief officer held up the baby in order to find the parents. The parents did not show up, instead the lokal butcher Levinsohn took care of the baby and later on adopted the boy. This boy grew up in Bogense and became Consul Willum Foenss, a title he was honoured with after some years abroad. As he grew old, he felt a great dept of gratitude to his town, and donated the statue of Manneken Pis to honour the townspeople. He felt the boy's story resembled his own.
On March 20th 1934, his daughter, the Baroness Rosenkrantz, unveiled the little statue of Manneken. Back then, many people would have liked to see the little boy covered up. But today the Manneken Pis in Bogense is one of the most popular attractions in Bogense. On special occasions, the Manneken Pis is dressed up.
