A pair of giant yellow rubber ducks have been spotted in Hong Kong waters.
The bath toys are undergoing sea trials ahead of the exhibition Double Ducks by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman.
Since 2007, Hofman has taken his 61-foot-tall monumental rubber duck on a world tour. On the 10th anniversary of its first visit to Hong Kong, the creative brand ARR has invited the rubber duck back, accompanied by a new friend.
Part of its tour included the Great Lakes in 2016, where it was floating at the annual spectacle alongside replica ships that include a Spanish Galleon and a Viking longboat.
The pair tested their swimming skills in Victoria Harbor near Tsing Yi island at the end of May, prior to the June 10th official exhibition opening.
Organiser ARR say the Double Ducks are “happiness icons” and aim “to spread the healing power of art and bring joy to everyone via this large-scale public art exhibition.”
“Hofman’s freewheeling imagination of childlike wonder has gained notice from the public,” said Hofman, “inspiring people to take a break from their mundane daily life and connect with one another.”
