Fleur Pavilia, New World Development’s latest PAVILIA residence in Hong Kong under The Artisanal Movement, is themed around The Three Friends of Winter - pine, bamboo and plum blossom. The trio thrives in the harshness of winter for their remarkable characteristics - grit, perseverance, and resilience.

The design of puppets and sets are deeply inspired by marine biology with the usage of found pieces of jewelry and objects.
