Inadvertently creating perhaps the greatest photo ops ever, Rubber Duck has been traveling the world since 2007 as part of an ongoing art project by Dutch creator Florentijn Hofman. "The Rubber Duck knows no frontiers," he says. "It doesn't discriminate people and doesn't have a political connotation."
