A giant rubber duckie — one of Dutch artist Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman’s floating works of art, exploded in Taiwan.

The BBC reports that “the giant inflatable” burst suddenly Tuesday “in front of scores of people gathered on a quayside” in Keelung Port.

The ducks have been on display all over the world since 2007. Hofman believes his ducks promote “peace and harmony.”
