Khipu Notes

Ascher Databook Notes:
  1. The khipu is in 2 parts separated by a large space along the main cord.
    1. Part I contains 3 groups of 12 pendant cords each. The 3 groups are separated by space; each repeats the same color pattern; each has only one subsidiary and it is on the last pendant in the group; all cords are blank ({)or have value 0).
    2. Part II contains 2 groups of 3 pendant cords each. The groups are separated by space and each repeats the same color pattern. In contrast to Part I, the cords in Part II are not blank.
