There are few musical instruments that have arrived down to our day from periods prior to 1500. This hurdy gurdy is an instrument which was reconstructed in 2006 based on a triptych from the reliquary of Martin the Humane in the Monasterio de Piedra (Zaragoza), in which an Angel appears playing a hurdy gurdy.
