(which all the while ran blood) great Caesar fell.(By Shakespeare)
Then burst his mighty heart;
And in his mantle muffling up his face,
Even at the base of Pompey’s statue

Parentheses often mean that the information enclosed is useful but not essential. They are often misused.
The antecedent of "which" is "statue".
In fact the first set of parentheses are original. The second set were added by me.You mean which referred to "staue".As we know a statue is something ,how can it" ran blood"?Thanks!
