Looking at a big duck changes your brain

So says Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, whose giant duck sculpture has arrived in Taiwan.

Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman's giant "Rubber" Duck has arrived in Taiwan! 

"This big rubber duck in your harbor, in Kaohsiung in this case, changes Kaohsiung," Hofman told the Associated Press.

"And it changes also your fantasy and your brain."

Thousands gathered. 

Dozens dressed like ducks themselves.

And spread their wings wide!

But don't be fooled.

Towing a giant duck is big work.

It's a 59-foot version of something that is usually so very small.

But what's really crazy.

Is that from far away it still looks really small.
