We have previously been looking at the landscape under the rainbow and between the rungs of the ladder in Melencolia as you see here:

Here’s what the arrows are pointing to:

1. The blue arrow is pointing to some sort of box that is on the top of the rooftop

2.  The yellow arrow is pointing to a person sitting on the box on the rooftop

3. The purple arrow is pointing to what appears to be a fraction of “1/2” labeling the rooftop

4.The orange arrow is pointing to what appears to be a weathervane and it appears to be pointing east

5. The pink arrow is pointing to another object right next to the person on top of the box

WHAT IS HAPPENING ON THESE ROOFTOPS?

More to come!
