Excellent capture Roel - seen the moment - presumably the selfie was to capture the cherub apparently spouting water over her head ...

Don't let out the location, bound to become a selfie hot spot ...

That little statue is the quite famous "Manneken Pis" (Little Man Pee) in Brussels.

Indeed a hotspot of Brussels tourism and not only for selfies (and has been so since long before the advent of smartphones).

He even has his own website, showing (among other things) the different constumes custom-made for him : http://www.manneken-pis.be/

Judging by the angle of the camera if it is in position for the shot - then it must be quite wide-angle and the perspective must show the stream of water to one side of the self-model's hair. Which certainly is an innovative and fun shot.  This might have been impossible to judge by using the big bopper held in the other hand - even if her arms were long enough.
