Giant Rubber Duck Floats Into Hong Kong Harbor

Posted: Updated:

A six-story inflatable 'rubber duck' floated into Hong Kong's iconic harbor on Thursday in front of delighted crowds.

Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman created the oversized toy, and says it brings people back to their childlike and stress-free state but also makes them more conscious of each other.

The piece of art takes 30 minutes to inflate.

The duck will stay docked alongside shopping mall, Harbor City, who commissioned the work, until June 9 after which it will visit the USA and Middle East.
