From Juan de Horozco y Covarrubias, Emblemas morales. Segovia: Juan de la Cuesta, 1589. The same woodcut was used in the 1591 reprint. A new woodcut woodcut was used in the 1604 edition. This illustration is at the opening of Emblema 34, on fol. 67 in the Libro segundo.
The body shape is clear indication that it is intended to be a lute, but there are few details, other than the five strings and an angled pegbox.
