The Thingamajig

I wonder what inspired the wavy lines on this large Bakelite button in bright, luminous rootbeer. A trickle of deep ravines, they seem to form something reminiscent of a fossil or maybe a seashell. Or does this button bear the footprint of a twig-like space alien? It's anybody's guess what's going on with these curvy tendrils on this old keepsake from the 1930's.
