Surprising, whimsical and a whole lot of fun for no apparent reason.

Internationally-acclaimed artist Florentijn Hofman isn't high-brow or elitist when it comes to his urban sculptures - he wants to astonish audiences and give them a new perspective on public spaces. His sculptures are big, very big, and Rubber Duck is no exception.

Hofman takes great care in finding a suitable habitat for his larger-than-life works. Rubber Duck, he says, doesn't discriminate and has no political connotation. "It relieves everyday tensions, as well as defining them. Its purpose is to do no more than amaze."

The bright yellow inflatable is five storeys high and five storeys wide and has been popping up in various cities around the world since 2007.
