This morning, I was lurking in the Piazza, near the first flagpole near the Clock Tower, so a friend in Melbourne could see me on the Concordia webcam.
I was a little bit early and did some snooping around. Boy, what a lucky impulse that was. On the columns that you’ll find on the left side of the Clock Tower, this little treasure trove.
And then, on a column on the bacino side of the Ducal Palace, this happily drew my attention. I wonder how old this one is; I think it’s on one of the original columns. Can you make out the outline of a sailing ship?
It’s on this column, if you want to find it for yourself.
