Khipu Notes

Ascher Databook Notes:
  1. Construction note:
    1. The twisted ends of the main cord and cord 1 are linked together and cord 2 is also linked through the open twist of cord 1.
    2. Cord 2 is then looped around cord 1. Hence, cords 1 and 2 dangle from the end of the main cord.
  2. This khipu is part of the collection of 7 connected khipus numbered UR1033A-UR1033G.
  3. The khipu has two groups by spacing . The groups are also separated by color: the first is all W; the second is all AB :W.
