The Viriginia exhibit in the palace of  Agriculture contained many open-sided structures or display cases topped by domes and then balls with triangular tufts above.  The exhibit is decorated with ears of dry corn, dried herbs, and stalks of grain. One of the domed structures appears to hold many bottle of champagne. Many bottles or glass containers  appear to be filled with dried grain.
