Sculptural detail with (left-right) Faith, Hope and Prudence, on the casing of the grand organ, built 1529-35 by Pierre Bert in Renaissance style from a design by Symon Hayeneufve, at the South junction of the transept, in the Cathedrale Saint-Julien du Mans or Cathedral of St Julian of Le Mans, Le Mans, Sarthe, Loire, France. The organ was restored in 1634 by Jean and Francois de Heman, then again in 1848 by the Claude brothers, and again in 1913, 1954, and in 1959-63 by Pierre Cheron, Joseph Beuchet and Danion-Gonzalez. The organ was inaugurated by Pierre Cheron, Joseph Beuchet and Danion-Gonzalez in 1974. The cathedral itself was built from the 6th to the 14th centuries, with both Romanesque and High Gothic elements. It is dedicated to St Julian of Le Mans, the city's first bishop, who established Christianity in the area in the 4th century AD. Picture by Manuel Cohen
