In case you didn't get to the detailed pics, those gold-colored dots on the walls are wads of bread dough.

The spheres atop the tower remind me of "Rover" in The Prisoner.

Went to the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg (Florida (Why is it there?)), and have been an even bigger fan since. There are many of his famous works there. His technical painting ability was second to none.

I thought those oval pieces looked like eggs and then I saw your comment Virtual. Knowing that it was designed by Dali, it makes a lot of sense.

On top the tower, he alternates them: ...egg-Rover-egg-Rover...

I doubt he would have liked seeing that representative bronze statue in the foreground of this view. At least give it a rickety crutch to lean on.
