Desert Glass Pectoral

Does Dali's painting also reference Tutenkhamun's Desert Glass pectoral, with the central stone becoming Napoleon's head and the red rock through the gap in the central structure on the bottom left being the position of the left bird like claw of the scarab, and the chunk taken out below the head is the tail of the scarab? 

The orangey red beads match the orangey red colour used in the painting
