This masterpiece of carving is the work of Jean Buron of 1633, encasing the organ of Saint Etienne du Mont.  The organ itself was built by the master organ builder Pierre le Pescheur and completed in 1636.  Over the centuries, some of the most reknown organ builders in the world made revisions to this organ, from Clicquot to Cavaillé-Coll, Beuchet-Debierre, and several more.

Cherubs and angels surely would make a joyful noise here.
