Seen from the perspective of a viewer walking across the Piazza San Marco, this scene presents the clock tower, erected around 1500, caught in the bright sun. To the right, the towering façade of the basilica is backlit and depicted in deep relief; in front of it, tradespeople in tents are proffering their wares.
