Water, Cloud, Quintessence
2014
“Water”, “Cloud” & “Quintessence” symbolizes the beauty, elegance and harmony brought by flowing water and floating clouds on earth. The flowing water can also symbolize “thriving” which represents a slim figure, transparent, bright, and the various changes between motion and tranquility. These beauties also represent "Grand Victoria Hotel". Her noble taste and elegance brings a whole new level of visual and sensual delight for our guests.
