Ettal Abbey, Bavaria, Germany -- Johann Baptist Zimmermann's organ balcony occupies the rear 3 of the 12 panels and rests atop 4 pillars. Zimmermann was born and raised at Wessobrunn where his father and brother were also plasterers. What we think of as art, they probably viewed as a trade. Johann Georg Hoerthrich from Swabia built the organ in 1753.
