Blazon New Trails

Rushing in where angels fear to tread, my attempt at a blazon in English of the new Pope’s new arms (via Zadok the Roman):

Per pall inverted cappato; dexter, or, a Moor’s head sable, crowned and adorned gules; sinister, or, a bear of St. Corbinian sable, passant, armed and langued gules, bearing a pack gules crossed with a saltire argent; in base, azure, a cockleshell inverted argent.

I couldn’t find anything in English heraldry that quite corresponded with “cappatto”, so I just used that as a description.
