Description
Bronze marquette of Lord Casey, standing, made in preparation for the life-size bronze sculpture of Lord Casey that stands on High Street, Berwick. Like the statue in High Street, the marquette shows Lord Casey with his hand gently clasped in front and a calm, thoughtful expression. He wears several medallions and badges representing his achievements in the military and political life.

On 15 December 1994, the City of Casey was named in recognition of the significant contributions to the region and to Australis of Lord Richard Gavin Gardiner Casey and Lady Maie Casey who lived on the property 'Edrington' in Berwick, a property of State Significance to Victoria. Lord Casey (1890-1976) was an engineer, diplomat, and had a long and distinguished political career serving as Federal Treasurer in 1935 and many other prominent positions including Governor of Bengal from 1944 to 1947 and Governor General of Australia from 1965 to 1970.
