    The shape is one often seen in descriptions of Tesla's Wardenclyffe
plant.  Sort of a large mushroom with hemispherical caps covering the
surface.  Looks impressive but can't imagine the utility of the bumps.

Possibly a toroid, or other shape, made with several hemispherical (or less than hemispherical) caps joined. It´s a common technique for the construction of large high-voltage terminals.
