Bue

represented with the tail hanging, unlike the bull that turned it to us on its back. It can be lying in rest ("lying down"), in the act of running ("current"), while resting on the four legs ("still"), standing on its hind legs ("furious"), in the act of walking ("passer-by" ), "leaving" with half of the body from a partition or piece or flap of the shield, or with the body severed by a clean blow ("severed"). There can only be the head in profile or facing ("meeting of b.").
