Khipu Notes

Ascher Databook Notes:
  1. AS201, AS202, and AS203 are designated by the same museum number. (See AS201 observations 1 and 2.)
  2. By spacing, the khipu is separated into two parts. The first part has a single pendant and then a group of 4 pendants. The second part consists of 8 groups of 4 pendants each. All of the 4 pendant groups have the same color pattern: NB, YB, LB, LB. Except for the group of pendants in part I and the sixth group in part II, all pendant values are 0 or 1. The pendants in part I and in group 6 have the same values: 6, 4, 4, and 9 in the latter and broken in the former.
