Black Mardi Gras Indians Transformed

New Orleans Mardi Gras Indians by Carl Merricks in his Residence

These photo found after Hurricane Katrina in the home of a Carl Merricks a gentleman that sewed suits for some of the tribes of the Mardi Gras  Indians shows the beauty of re-discovering something that might have been lost.  And the beautiful workmanship that goes into creating these piece of art that the Mardi Gras Indians wear every year.  Who says that a piece of couture or great workmanship has to come from Paris.

Peace & Love......LivvyV
