The Mayil Mosaic is a grand piece of art and craft work joining together fabric tiles of 12×12 inch size displaying the national bird and a trademark of the old Mylai in all shapes, sizes, colours and forms. The pieces have been contributed by women and children and stitched together for the fest. Displayed opposite to the Rasi Silk showroom.:
