On the wall of the house overlooking the Ponte del Cavallo (next to the Scuola Grande di San Marco) is a beautiful bas-relief of the Annunciation, the work of the Flemish sculptor Josse de Corte (1627-78), who was known in Venice as Giusto Le Court

A smaller and much less visible image of the Madonna and Child is attached to the bridge itself. There are two tiny depictions of gondolas at the bottom of the shrine.
