Invisible to the naked eye

Exploration of infinitely small details in artworks with Gigapixel technology

At the top of St Mark's Campanile (tower on the left), someone is walking on the edge of the tower.
It seems that the crowd behind the windows is shouting at him... What is he doing ?
What is he holding in his hand ?
Here, the Flemish painter presents a particularly realistic description of the feudal society. On the foreground, peasants cut and gather the corn.
If we zoom in, we discover a very interesting scene. A few people having a bath... How can this be related to Bruegel's description of the feudal society ?
Actually, those naked people having fun are monks. We can recognize them with their cassocks. Was Bruegel trying to say something about the Clergy ?!
