Fort Condé Iberville Exhibit

This Fort Condé exhibit features a model of Mobile founding father Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville as well as a traditional portrait of him at the left. Iberville is shown in traditional French aristocratic dress in the painting, but the model displays his many tattoos, which were inspired by body decorations he saw during his time among the Native Americans of the Gulf Coast.
