From the boat exit two hand-holding same-sex installations (2002, 135x37x26cm on left and 133x62x20cm right) by Joseph Ellul Vincenti, which with permission were slightly updated. In 2014, a Maltese law passed creating civil unions equal to marriage in all but name, which finally gave the same rights and obligations to local Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Questioning (LGBTIQ) persons, including joint adoption rights. Hence an extra balloon-♥ was added and which is why the two hold the 3♥-card between them. Furthermore they are the folks to tell the lore of the following card.
