Shanghai 'roasts' Dutch artist's giant Rubber Duck
SHANGHAI (AFP) - Shanghai has served up a "roasted" version of a Dutch artist's giant yellow duck, complete with drumsticks and crispy brown skin.
Florentijn Hofman's Rubber Duck installation gained rave reviews when a 16.5 metre-tall version arrived in Hong Kong this summer.
Hundreds of thousands of people viewed it against the backdrop of the skyscrapers that line the city's Victoria Harbour.
Not to be outdone, Shanghai - which is vying with Hong Kong to be China's financial capital - has unveiled its own version on the Huangpu River, which forms its waterfront Bund district.
