Hong Kong, as the crossroads of east and west, has developed a blend of eating culture. 燒 味 (Siu Mei, roasted or barbecued foods) is a typical Hong Kong cuisine, where roasted duck, goose, pig and chicken are displayed by hanging them in shop windows.
Using 3d digital technologies, a real local roasted duck was scanned, re-sized and produced by rapid prototyping (SLA- Stereo lithography), then plated (nickel free). The iconic "hanging duck" is translated into a witty accessory that is humorous and elegant at the same time.
