Rubber Duck

Rubber Duck is an installation created by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman built to resemble the yellow bath toy. The 16.5-metre giant Rubber Duck arrived in Hong Kong on May 2, 2013, having visited 12 cities, including Sydney, Osaka and Auckland.

Taoyuan officials are planning to borrow another Hofman-designed duck commissioned by Kaohsiung city government. Photo: Reuters

Giant duck explodes, a victim of earthquake

It's been a tough Asian tour for the giant yellow duck.

It collapsed in Hong Kong in May, got stuck under a bridge in Osaka last month, and yesterday exploded in Taiwan.
