See 16-137. This is one of the two vihuelas painted on the finiuals on each side of the back of the throne on which St Vincent sits (16-138; 16-139).
One of the four instruments in the painting. this vihuela has a body with cornered waists, a central soundhole (not depicted with any rosette) and a fixed bridge at the lower end of the body. It was a medium length neck, finishing with a flat angled pegbox. The monochrome depiction (as if depicting a carved wooden image) has no other visible details of strings, frets or pegs.) The instrument appears to be being played with a thumb-out technique very close to the body-neck join.
