Man with a Medieval String Instrument - Homme a la vielle - Vielaire
This street musician, the Man with a Medieval String Instrument (also referred to as a hurdy-gurdy), is one of the oldest Santons to appear in the crib, first appearing around 1820. Pictured below, the "vielle" (the word deriving from the Old Provencal "violo") is a stringed key-board instrument found in the folklore of many regions of France.
As a performer, he is dressed very nicely and holds his hurdy-gurdy in his hands as he prepares to play in honor of the Infant Jesus.
