This sculpture speaks on true friendship by means of the sub rosa element which its name implies. Although somewhat malevolent, the sculptureis expressive of confidentiality, reliability and trust. The convention of trust is a human necessity that is synonymous with association, affiliation and amicability; virtues that are well definitive of friendship. All things being equal; a friend is someone in whom one can place their trust.
International Friendship Day was established to promote friendship and fellowship among all humanity; regardless of their race, colour or religion and to be recognise its relevance and importance of friendship as a noble and valuable sentiment in the lives of human beings around the world. It is observed on July 30 each year.
The International Day of Friendship is also based on an important opportunity to confront the misunderstandings and distrust that underlie so many of the tensions and conflicts in today's world. It is a reminder that human solidarity is essential to promoting lasting peace and fostering development.
On this International Day of Friendship; cultivate new warm ties that strengthen  humanity and promote the companionship of all.
