Gothic Harp Painted by Heironymus Bosch

As mentioned on the 'Classical Journey' on Tuesday, Shaun Newman was able to work out the design of the Gothic harp by studying a painting by Heironymus Bosch.  Here it is with Shaun's harp for comparison.  See what you think.
Hieronymus Bosch, Garden of Earthly Delights,
c. 1500, Triptych, Oil on panel,
central panel: 220 x 195 cm, wings: 220 x 97 cm,
