Khipu Notes

Ascher Databook Notes:
  1. This pendant may not be an original attachment.
  2. With 4 single colors, there were 12 colors created. Two colors appear alone and the 4 are combined 2 at a time into 10 others
  3. The last 4 pendant groups are set off by color as well as spacing. (The previous groups show no color patterning.)
    The 4 groups consist of 2 groups of SB each; then 2 groups of 7 each, with the first having 2W then 5 BL:C and subsidiaries of B/LC on positions 3 and 5, and the next only differing by W replacing B:LC in both positions 4 and 6.
