At the top of the columns are the marble statues of the two patron saints of Venice: St. Mark, depicted by the marching lion, and San Todaro (Teodoro), depicted in the act of killing a dragon. At their bases, of Istria stone, are depicted, in relief, the crafts that once took place in the square: of the 4 statues placed under the column of San Todaro, are still recognizable the crafts of the fishmonger and the blacksmith; while of the 3 statues placed under the column of St. Mark, only the trade of the greengrocer is recognizable.
