Caption

Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman's 18-meter rubber duck floated in the Glory Pier harbor in Kaohsiung City, southern Taiwan.

Kaohsiung's Rubber Duck, one of several Rubber Ducks exhibited around the world based on the design by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, measured 18 meters high and weighed 1,000 kilograms, making it Asia's biggest and the world's second biggest.

Thousands of admirers flocked to Kaohsiung Harbor to get a last glimpse of the city’s Rubber Duck inflatable sculpture. Glory Pier was packed with admiring tourists to pose for photographs with the floating artwork.

Closing ceremony for artist Florentijn Hofman's duck exhibition was at 4pm 10/22/2013, the Rubber Duck may be exhibited in Kaohsiung a total of three times between September 2013 and September 2015, which means the duck could make two more appearances.
