Ascher Databook Notes:
  1. Construction note: The B main cord is extended by a W main cord. The W main cord is formed into a large loop by being passed through its own twisted end. It has also been passed through the twisted end of the B main cord so that it dangles from the end of the B cord.\
  2. This is one of several khipus acquired by the Museum in 1907 with provenance Ica. For a list of these khipus, see AS100.
  3. AS161 and AS162 are designated by the same Museum number. The main cord of AS161 is looped in the same way as is the W main cord of AS162
Primary Cord Notes:
The B main cord (AS162A) is extended by a W main cord (AS162B). The W main cord is formed into a large loop by being passed through its own twisted end. It has also been passed through the twisted end of the B main cord so that it dangles from the end of the B cord. (See diagram in Ascher and Ascher 1987:1001.)
