Yes, I mean organ grinder, hurdy-gurdy operator. I support his side and interests.

Your confounding a hurdy-gurdy with a barrel organ must be deliberate...

Isn't it obvious? The microphone is an item of advanced technology provided to the troupe by a visitor from an alien civilization.

I'm sure it's obvious to someone. But that someone is not me.

But the truly impressive advanced technology is the barrel organ (an 18th Century invention, which looks sort of like a large crate standing on end on a dolly with large wheels), which in the painting is miniaturized and disguised to look exactly like a hurdy-gurdy!
