Why does this Director of Design have a swan around his neck?

(via) His name is Louis Hu. He was just hired by ad agency US Sydney. Maybe he is channeling or mocking Björk? Is it alive? Dead? Fake? Photoshopped? No matter, this is the official portrait of Louis Hu, Director of Design. Btw, here is my official portrait. Previously: What the Fuck is a Creative Director—11 official portraits.
Update! see comments for explanation.

Maybe it's some artsy fartsy, warped, lost in translation, Asian ying/yang, black swan/white/swan thing going on.

Quite intense and penetrating!

It's a photo of Leo DiCaprio from the 1990s, digitally altered, for what reason I know not!

The original image was taken by photographer Annie Leibovitz in 1997.

Maybe it's a reference to the recruitment ad calling for "trumpeter swans" in Ogilvy on Advertising. Maybe it just makes the guy look like a dick and the photoshop attendant thought he deserved it.

FYI, the comments on the article announcing Hu's appointment on the site Campaign Brief are priceless.
