Hurdy Gurdy

15th Century

This instrument has been reconstructed from the picture by Hieronymus Bosch, entitled The Garden of Delights, painted sometime between 1500 and 1516. In the third panel of the painting, Bosch depicts Hell, and the sort of things that lead you to go to there! Bosch apparently took a very dim view of music, and thought musical instruments were the works of the Devil.
