Interesting theory, Yohann.

You are probably right on the Bestiary as source for these animals! I mean, not on the tiles only, but also on the carpets.

To my knowledge, though, there was no use of inlaid floor tiles in Italy in this period. Well, at least not in Tuscany, and most of these painters were Tuscans.

I may be wrong - I’m not knowledgeable about tiles… but I am Tuscan and I don’t recall having seen such floor tiling or any records of them in different media.
Regards,

Filiberto
