Bogong Months, River Economy, Mount William Technology, and Corroboree in life size displays
Bangerang Cultural Centre houses a collection of four dioramas; Bogong Moths, River Economy, Mount William Technology and Corroboree which feature life-size figures engaged in traditional aspects of Aboriginal life.
The figures are copies of the Museum of Victoria 19th century life casts made from members of the Yarra tribe of Melbourne. The dioramas were the work of Victorian artist George Browning (1918-2000), a graduate of the National Gallery of Victoria School and RMIT.
As an official war artist attached to the Military History Section in New Guinea and Borneo from 1943 to 1946, he not only produced a substantial collection of paintings and drawings but after the war he also worked extensively on the Australian War Memorial dioramas, as well as work for the Museum of Victoria.
