Dutch Artist Florentijn Hofman's giant rubbber duck has been traveling the world since 2007, and has previously visited cities such as Sao Paulo, Auckland, Sydney, and Osaka. This is the first time the duck is visiting China, and will be there from now until June 9, 2013, making friends in Hong Kong's Victoria Harbor. Hofman hopes that the giant yellow creature will make people think of their childhood, but also bring diverse groups together. "The rubber duck knows no frontiers, it doesn't discriminate people and doesn't have a political connotation."
