Khipu Notes

Cultural Affiliation "Inca? early nazca?" and in remarks, "Orig says 'early nazca' 'prob. made up' from Peabody Museum.

Primary Cord Notes:
Primary cord appears to have previously been cord-wrapped (s-wrapping); however, the cord-wrapping has been removed (leaving its impression and some discoloration). Removing the cord-wrapping would have necessitated removing pendant strings and reattaching them later.
