Khipu Notes

Ascher Databook Notes:
  1. This is one of several khipus acquired by the Museum in 1907 with provenance Ica. For a list of these khipus, see UR1100.
  2. This khipu has also been discussed by Nordenskiold(see Introduction).
  3. By spacing, the khipu is separated into 2 groups of 6 pendants each. All the pendants are color W. Where there is one subsidiary on a pendant, it is color R0 or B; where there are 2 subsidiaries, they are one of each color.
  4. In both groups, the values have the same relative magnitudes: Pl>P2>P3>P4>P5 = P6.
