Onder de Linden Horen en zien, with a gigantic chair

Onder de Linden Horen en zien, with a gigantic chair
Well, even if you may not know Dutch (as I don't myself), from seeing the poster of a child speaking into the ear of an old man, as well as the display of spectacle frames, you may guess that "horen en zien" is Dutch for "heard and seen."
