This is, of course, gibberish.  There is nothing in these images
which would allow accurate estimation of size.   We can not even
estimate the size of the buildings, which may be only inches
tall.

I, too, want to know about this "mark".  Is this like the mark of
Zorro? Or parhaps one of the "Marks Brothers"?  Groucho, where
are you when we need you?  Or did he intend to say telltale
heart, not mark?  Nevermore, I say.
