This is a piece I created on photoshop. It took me about four hours.

In this picture, Pan, the Arcadian Greek god of pastures and rustic melodies, fastens his pan-flute from a set of reeds. Syrinx, the nymph whom the god tried courting, fled from him to the river and pleaded assistance from the river-nymphs, and in response, they transformed her into hollow cattail reeds. When Pan saw this, he constructed the instrument from Syrinx's reeds, and resonated his breath through the hollow structure.
