Animal pelt?

Dear Salonistas,

At the risk of exposing my lack of imagination, I'd like to say that while the motifs on the field could be read as those on an animal's pelt, I don't see anything else suggesting that this is what the thing represents. In fact, even among the animal pelt theory proponents there is disagreement about whether the motifs are stylized tiger stripes, stylized leopard spots, or stylized nothing in particular on a wolf.

I don't see any of the anatomical landmarks that say "animal", none at all. No eyes, no legs, no tail, no teeth. Nothing. It could just as easily represent a brick outhouse or a field full of sheep.

What am I missing here?
