Rubber Duck visits Hong Kong

2 posts in this topic

Really big rubber ducky floats into Hong Kong. Photo gallery, video. Next stop, United States.

Thousands lined the harbor front and work ground to a halt in offices with sea views as the much-hyped 'Rubber Duck' made its grand entrance. For two weeks local media has been on something of a "duck watch," closely monitoring the movements of the 16.5-meter (54 feet) inflatable sculpture.

Yu Kwan Yee of Hong Kong was part of the crowd. "The duckie is swimming," the 2 ½-year-old said.

Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman created the bright-yellow duck, and it was built of PVC material in New Zealand by a company specializing in large sails.

Other ducks get into the act:

New ducks have popped up in the central city of Wuhan, the ancient city of Xi'an, the northern port city of Tianjin and Hengdian, a town in Zhejiang province that is home to a massive movie studio.
