Why the Round Menorah?

In 1982 the Rebbe stated that the round Menorah is NOT the real shape of the original Menorah * Furthermore, round branched Menorahs represent the dominance of Golus over Jews * So why the round Menorah?

Torah Online Parshas Tzav
This week's section opens with a double commandment "A constant fire must burn on the altar, it shouldn't be extinguished." At first glance the last part of the sentence is unnecessary; why tell us not to extinguish the fire when we already know it must burn constantly? Also this Shabbat is called 'The Big Shabbat' (Shabbat HaGodol) because of a big miracle that happened before the Jews left Egypt: G-d commanded the Jews to take sheep, an Egyptian god, into their houses to be sacrificed before leaving Egypt.
