Rubber duck floating art

HONG KONG - A rubber duck is making waves in Hong Kong. Not exactly what you would expect to see floating around the city's bustling harbour.

The massive inflatable duck is the creation of a Dutch artist, who wants to transport people back to their childhoods.

Artist Florentijn Hofman said, "Well, it means, I mean that we're living on one planet, we're one family and all the waters in the world is our global bathtub and it joins people together, it makes us family. And it also means that we have to take care of each other, you know, and be responsible about this planet, as you are responsible about your own house and bath. That's the idea."

Hundreds watched as the duck was towed in.

The rubber duck, which takes 30 minutes to inflate, has been bobbing around since 2007, having already travelled to Osaka, Sydney and Sao Paulo.

It will visit the US and the Middle East next.
