I'm trying to find an illustrated book I had as a child. I can't recall the title or illustrator but the general theme was this:
A god like figure with a lute, sitar or harp plays music and creates planets. He plays different notes and creates a planet for each of the four seasons. I recall vividly the Winter planet as a page illustrated with a repeated pattern of silver horses and deer. The Summer planet had a page of pink flamingos and other birds I think! In the end all the planets join to create Earth, but I'm not 100% on that. It was beautiful and really colourful, I'd love to find it. I've tried many different search terms! I seem to think the title had something to do with the name of the music maker, but neither I nor my family can remember what that was.
We had it about 20 years ago and it was in English.
We managed to recover a page from the book whilst searching through some old boxes:
