Khipu Notes

Ascher Databook Notes:
  1. The pendant is not attached to the main cord in the usual way. Subsidiaries (no., position)
  2. By spacing, there are 9 groups of 5, 5, 4, 4, 4, 4, 5, 4, 3 pendants. However, within each group there is the same basic color pattern of W, B:W, B:W, W. The variations from this are: group 1 has an additional first pendant with a different attachment and peculiarly placed s knots; groups 2 and 7 have an additionalpendant colored B following the first W pendant; and group 9 is lacking the final W pendant.
  3. With the exception of the peculiar first pendant, all pendant values are O, 1, 2, or 3.
