A number of the churches in Venice have strange ariel-like projections upon their roof tops with golden orbs at the end of each cross piece.  I once mistakenly tried to navigate towards to the church that I knew featured this ornamentation, until I discovered they are commonplace, and the St Marks has several!

I’ve no idea what they signify, but it seems the 21st century citizens want to provide some competition.
