Mrs Ijeoma Amazin Ogbodo Nweze shared her British born Nigerian daughter, Princess Zina Glorie's hand made cathedral design on Facebook, which has left many stunned.
The 12-year-old girl is reportedly the first of four children and has just begun secondary education at Brampton Manor Academy, London.
Mrs Nweze shared the amazing photos, commenting:
"My 12 year old daughter was asked to design a cathedral for her Arts project. .. with no clue she started gathering garbage ... (She forget she has a qualified Architect as a dad) She did most of the gathering and work...
"When I saw her running around, gathering old files, foam, daddy's roofing insulation, dirty things from the bin, cereal boxes and knicked my new shoe box. She literally went into my filling cabinet and removed that brown top for the cathedral roofing. Seriously, I thought it was a joke until I saw her finished work. She gathered, chopped, sharpened, chipped, glued and finally messed up the whole house putting together this fine structure. Please see her finished Art Work ...Welldone my Princess."
In a recent interview with a magazine, Zina revealed the reason behind her design, saying:
"In January, the whole of year 7 were given a project to come up with a design of a Saxon, Norman or Gothic Cathedral and were given 2 weeks to hand it in. I came home and discussed it with my parents who gave me a lot of support. My dad went off his way to show me where to get most of the materials I needed for my history project."
"Most night I worked with my dad until 10pm, in order to rest up for early school rise. I gathered so many materials, chopped, chipped and sharpened the wood, painted the blue shoe box to white, glued the paper windows and finally messed up the whole house. My hands were so sticky (from the glue) for 2 days. My hair had paints on it. I couldn't take out my braids because I had agreed with my mum, that I’ll keep the braids for at least 6 weeks."
The photos will leave you stunned, as we wish that young Zina goes places with her talent.
