I noticed the gable above this shop in Amsterdam.
The plaque shows a shepherd with his flock represented in a dune-like landscape. The sculptor has been inspired by a number of sketches the painter "Nicolaas Berchem"(1620-1683).
Around 1910 a few buildings in this street were demolished and replaced by a post office with upstairs apartments. This early 18-century plaque was saved and bricked in the hall of the post-office. But when a cash-machine had to be placed in 1989 the plaque was not visible anymore. So it was replaced to the opposite of the street, visible for everyone passing by.
