A huge inflatable rubber duck has floated into Hong Kong’s iconic Victoria Harbour, delighting crowds of both young and old. The 16.5 metre high by 19.2 metre long duck is the work of Dutch artist, Florentijn Hofman, who says the idea is to unite people and make them concious about the planet.
“All the waters in the world is our global bathtub and it joins people together,” Hofman said.
“We have to take care of each other, you know, and be responsible about this planet, as you are responsible about your own house and bath.”
The giant rubber duck, which takes 30 minutes to inflate, has already travelled to Osaka, Sydney, Sao Paulo, Amsterdam and many more countries since 2007. Report by Laurie Blake.
