Here's a rubber ducky that won't fit in your bathtub. Conceptual artist Florentijn Hofman brought his gargantuan Rubber Duck artwork to Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong. Measuring an astounding 46 feet tall and 55 feet long, the gigant rubber duck completely trumps the tiny tug boat pulling it into the harbor. Like many of his works, which often involve adorably cute oversized toy animals, the rubber duck is sure to put a smile the faces of Hong Kong's residents. Here's a description by the artst:
"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!"
Rubber Duck, the city's newest Prozac, will be on display in the harbor through June 9th, 2013
