The 9 Greatest Peeing Statues Ever

This is not a pissing contest.

Statues can do many things. They can inspire a flow of praise or incite a stream of criticism. They can represent a slice of history or become a tangible tribute to an artist’s vision brought to life. Sometimes they even pee.

A person relieving him or herself in a public place is often considered a shameful scene. People may avert their eyes or cast scornful glares, but urinating statues are a different story. Public art that pees more often becomes a quirky, beloved addition to a place (though not always). These naughty fixtures add a wee bit of whimsy to parks and city centers around the world.
