Cy Twombly, Winter’s Passage: Luxor  1985

This sculpture was originally made from off-cuts of timber, and was then cast in bronze. With its sloping mast, it resembles a traditional Nile boat. Twombly’s title refers to the journey from the ancient Egyptian capital Luxor to the burial grounds, such as the Valley of the Kings, in the deserts on the west bank of the Nile. The block of wood placed on the boat like a piece of cargo could represent a sarcophagus protecting the body on its final journey.
