World’s Largest Rubber Duck Bobs Along in Hong Kong

These photos make me grin from ear to ear.

Conceptual artist Florentijin Hofman brought his gargantuan Rubber Duck artwork to Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong. The huge inflatable duck measures nearly 46 feet tall and 55 feet long and is shown above being pulled by a tug boat only a fraction of its size. Hofman is well known for his grandiose and whimsical sculptures that seem born with the primary goal of inducing as many smiles possible. Via the artist’s website

The Rubber Duck knows no frontiers, it doesn’t discriminate people and doesn’t have a political connotation. The friendly, floating Rubber Duck has healing properties: it can relieve mondial tensions as well as define them. The rubber duck is soft, friendly and suitable for all ages!

According to SCMP (South China Morning Post) Rubber Duck will be on display in the harbor through June 9th, 2013.

Rubber Duck previously visited Sydney Australia earlier this year. Some photos below are from this visit as well as the new ones in Hong Kong.

This first image is from Hong Kong – and it is a large photo. Best to click on it, then click one more time for full size. This just tickles me.
