I’m thinking the sides of the pentagonal pyramid doorstop could have horizontal stripes either as these may be more practical than the vertical ones at the apex of the pyramid.The doorstop will have to be tall enough to be easily lifted which may result in too large a base on the pentagon – in which case I will modify it to a 4-sided pyramid possibly.

The top of the shape will probably have all the apexes of the sides gathered together at the top with braids etc hanging down and possibly a carrying handle.
