Khipu Notes

Ascher Databook Notes:
  1. Construction note: The twisted end of cord 1 is linked through the twisted end of the main cord so that it dangles from the end of the main cord. (See diagram for UR1100.)
  2. This is one of several khipus acquired by the Museum in 1907 with provenance Pachacamac. For a list of them, see UR1097.
  3. By spacing, the khipu is separated into 3 groups of 2 pendants each and then 2 groups of 3 pendants each. In each group of 2 pendants, the color order is LB, W.
