Is the penguin all black or does it have a white belly? Does the body face to the left or just the head?

[Field?] three rapiers inverted conjoined at the bells [Tincture], a cooking pot depended from the bells [Tincture]

I am not sure if this is a valid Heraldic positioning. I am fairly sure I have seen a cooking tripod with cauldron hanging from it in SCA heraldry, but I may be confusing it with something else I have seen.

Tinctures and a field would help with the second blazon
