January 9, 2020, 12:39 PM · What is "a cabinet Jean-Francois Raffin"?

Is it a 3D laser hologram of his image, or what?

Edited: January 9, 2020, 5:57 PM · David, it means he's primarily a cabinet-maker. Kidding aside, I think it means his entourage.
January 10, 2020, 3:36 AM · A "cabinet" in French is an expert's office and team, for example a doctor's or lawyer's.
January 11, 2020, 10:51 AM · Dr. Caligari had a cabinet. I think it's something to do with magic or evil.
