A lot of the files in your list  are in fact symbolic links.  For example:

019b0629e40ea6235500c601e1fbbb01  ./decorations/sakura_01.svg
019b0629e40ea6235500c601e1fbbb01  ./plants/flowers/sakura_01.svg
019b0629e40ea6235500c601e1fbbb01  ./plants/sakura_01.svg

ls -l plants/sakura* plants/flowers/sakura_* decorations/sakura*

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root    23 2008-04-22 12:36
decorations/sakura_01.png -> ../plants/sakura_01.png
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root    16 2008-04-22 12:36
plants/flowers/sakura_01.png -> ../sakura_01.png
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root    26 2008-04-22 12:36
plants/flowers/sakura_dave_pena_01.png -> ../sakura_dave_pena_01.png
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 45074 2008-01-07 17:59 plants/sakura_01.png
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 64197 2008-01-07 17:59 plants/sakura_dave_pena_01.png

If you ignore these, then I believe that there are no duplicates.  Did
you perhaps convert all of your symbolic links to actual files?

I get no duplicates at all with your script, 2,234 if I include
symbolic links (i.e. omit the '-type f' option to find).
