1: Oengus O Mullaney -Resub Device

This is a resubmission at Kingdom level from the Avacal KLoI 2015-09-22. This submission was returned with the following comments:

Device: Argent, two bull's heads caboshed fesswise reversed and fesswise gules between six triskellion arrondi in annulo vert.As the name was pended, the device cannot progress without a name; however, the following comments were noted:
Bullheads do not look like Bulls heads but more like lobsters. The device should be recognizable from a distance.
Unity of Posture SENA A.3.D.2.c. I can find no animal heads that are fesswise cabossed in general, let alone two that are mirrors of each other.
Standing precedent also doesn't allow an inverted animate charge, so a head and a head inverted isn't likely to be a period arrangement.
Triskelions must be larger as they are difficult to recognize.

The submitter has redesigned the device, placing the bull's head in pale and the same unity of posture, and enlarging the triskels and placing them in "a bordure". Original submission shown below for reference.
