Damien Hirst's Gone but not Forgotten is the gilded skeleton of a three-metre tall woolly mammoth currently on display in the garden of the Faena Hotel Miami Beach. The sculpture, which I saw recently when I was in Miami to see some tennis, was originally auctioned in support of amfAR, an organization dedicated to using innovative research to end the global AIDS epidemic. Hirst said of the sculpture: "The mammoth comes from a time and place that we cannot ever fully understand. Despite its scientific reality, it has attained an almost mythical status and I wanted to play with these ideas of legend, history and science by gilding the skeleton and placing it within a monolithic gold tank. It's such an absolute expression of mortality, but I've decorated it to the point where it's become something else, I've pitched everything I can against death to create something more hopeful, it is gone but not forgotten."
