A 10m tall giant rubber duck, created by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, was displayed in the Japanese city of Osaka recently. The rubber ducky (and its taller cousin) has been travelling around the world since its creation in 2007.

Inflatable, pontoon and generator 
(the cousin)

Florenjin Hofman claims his duck has "healing properties." What do you think? It does make people happy though :)
The Rubber Duck knows no frontiers, it doesn’t discriminate people and doesn’t have a political connotation. The friendly, floating Rubber Duck has healing properties: it can relieve mondial tensions as well as define them. The rubber duck is soft, friendly and suitable for all ages!
