Maralinga (Lin Onus)

While in Perth over the weekend I visited the State Art Gallery.
I came across a powerful sculpture by Lin Onus called 'Maralinga'. It depicts an Aboriginal mother protecting her child against the onslaught.
I sketched this image trying to capture the emotional structure of the image but feel the sketch lacks the rawness of the original.
