Khipu Notes


This khipu is part of a set (UR087, UR088, UR089, UR090, UR091, UR092) that were analyzed by Manual Medrano in his article Toward the Decipherment of a Set of Mid-Colonial Khipus from the Santa Valley, Coastal Peru.

3. By looking at the tops of the pendants it appears that there is significant fading.

Primary Cord Notes:The dark brown color is disintegrated. At 45.0 cm two of the plies are tied off in a knot. Cord has four components: W - W - AB - KB, all barber poled together.
