Stripes go all the way back to the Nazca lines in Peru in about 500BC, and can be seen even earlier on pottery throughout the world, notably Africa.
The first stripes were probably the result of a rock rolling down a muddy hillside which was seen and replicated thereafter by early hominids.
Other patterns of stripes are seen on animals and replicated on the bodies and walls with mud and various pigments. Skunk stripes, wolverine stripes, zebra stripes, etc.
We're talking about vehicles, not clay and animals... lol
