Quack, quack, the duck said silently as it swam back to the harbor on Tuesday. Did ya miss me? Image via Harbour City.
The duck is back.
“Thanks for all the support everyone! I am all freshen[ed] up!” said a post on Harbour City’s Facebook page on Tuesday. The post included a picture of the 16.5 meter tall rubber inflatable duck floating happily in its home in Hong Kong’s harbor.
The duck, a public art project by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, was taken down abruptly on May 15 for maintenance work to much dismay and worry.
During that maintenance period, “tourists and locals were disconsolate when the 16.5-meter-tall bath toy was deflated … turning it into a lookalike of a giant fried egg,” the Standard wrote.
Hurry and go catch a glimpse of our favorite fowl before it flies away on June 9.
