Khipu Notes

Ascher Databook Notes:
  1. This is one of several khipus acquired by the Museum in 1907 with provenance Pachacamac. For the others in this group, see UR1097.
  2. By spacing there are 6 groups of 5, 4,3, 3, 2, 2 pendants each.
  3. In each of the 6 groups, the last two pendants are colored W, DB. These 6 pairs are related in numerical value as well as color. The values of the last pendant and next to last pendant in the first group are the sums of the last and next to last pendant values respectively in the remaining five groups.
