Tawsi Melek Sanjak

I took the top photo of a clearly recent painting of an Indian sari-clad lady with a sanjak, a bronze image of the sacred peacock. I believe it is used for the parade of the peacocks on the Yezidi New Year, but as I mentioned, I have never made it to a festival and can't elaborate.
I will however try asking Ezster (who sent the bottom photo of the sanjak of Shekhan).
