Early Twelfth century minstrel

The internet gave me this picture of a Norman Minstrel, but I don't know where it came from or how (in)accurate it is.




What do you think?  Do you know of a better picture of a Norman Minstrel, with particular attention to his costume?   I know zero about clothing history, but I thought the Normans preferred shorter hair.
