Dreams From My Village
Dreams From My Village is the remarkable story of John Cross Omeke, a 13 year old Nigerian public sector schoolboy. He took part in a national art exhibition tour in Nigeria, beating over 500 children to earn a life changing prize – an invitation from Buckingham Palace to a private viewing of the works of Ben Enwonwu.
HM Queen Elizabeth sat for Ben Enwonwu in 1957 for a sculpture portrait and a number of his works are in the Royal Collection. These works were brought specially to Buckingham Palace for John Cross as part of his remarkable prize.
