The 54-foo high inflatable sculpture has travelled the world since it was launched in 2007. According to Design Boom
the duck's arrival in Hong Kong is the first time it has debuted in the greater region of China.
Thousands of people were waiting for the six-storey high rubber duck to make its grand entrance in the harbour. Local media had been on a two-week duck watch anticipating its arrival.
Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman who created the duck sculpture, was very happy the duck had made it to Hong Kong. CNN
reported Hofman said "I've wanted to come for years -- and my duck made it here before me!"
Hofman further encouraged people to get out and enjoy his art, saying "Be amazed, be creative. Look at it with your eyes and absorb the energy of the work in this location."
The duck will remain on show in Hong Kong until June 9th. Next step on its adventure is the U.S. but its destination there remains a secret.
