Big Chief Demond Melancon of the Young Seminole Hunters Mardi Gras Indian suits on display for the first time outside the United States.

About

Contemporary artist and educator, Big Chief Demond Melancon of the Young Seminole Hunters, and Assemble are collaborating with the V&A to bring Melancon’s huge Mardi Gras Indian suits composed of intricately hand-sewn beadwork to the Tapestries Gallery. The suits, illustrating actual and imagined events from African and American history, will sit in the gallery among rare tapestries from 1425, depicting hunting scenes of boars, bears, swans, otters, deer and falconry.
