Khipu Notes

Ascher Databook Notes:
  1. This is one of several khipus acquired by the Museum in 1907 with provenance Pachacamac. For a list of them, see UR1097.
  2. Two of the 4 subsidiaries are attached to their host pendants just below the main cord, and the other 2 are attached about 30.0 cm. lower. The latter (P4sl and PSsl) appear to be extensions of the pendant cord as P4 and PS terminate just below the subsidiary attachment and both lack unit knot clusters.
