I actually entered to this forum just to post this.

So there's a place in Haifa, Israel called Stella Maris, maybe you've heard about it, maybe you didn't.

What you probably didn't know is that there's a monument there dedicated to Napoleon's soldiers, and behold what lies on top of the monument:

Seems familiar? well it should! It's the freaking apple on top of that pyramid!! I actually visited there and recognized it immediately!

Are there other places in the world where you can find the "Apple" or did I actually find the source of it's design (or the real apple itself :P )

Looks more like a solid metal ball with two gold stripes on it to me.

Which is more or less the design of the Apple. Only the actual ball is gold.
