The alley is surrounded by beautiful turn-of-the century (not the most recent one, obviously) deteriorating residental buildings and was built in the 1980s to create an overview of the Dniepro and Podil from the upper part of Kiev.
Two years later seventeen more sculptures were added with the Kiev Fashion Park Project, one of them is this, the Four Manneken Pis. I have heard theories about what it might symbolise but as it might or might not be political and is only hearsay as far as I can tell, you will not get juicy details from me.
In the middle of January this year the park saw an interesting addition in the form of a new playground with an interesting economic message for children to educate them about the importance of paying taxes, again, Skretutsky's project in part. There is a bad world (shady economy) and a good world (fair economy) and to get from one to the other children have to cross a bridge, the Bridge of Justice over the Hryvnia River. Many more additions are expected in the spring funded by the Central Bank of Ukraine.

In the meantime if you want to read more about the Two Worlds project, Day Kiev published an informative article about it a couple of weeks ago and here's a bit of an interview with Constantine Skretutsky, too.
