Khipu Notes

This khipu appears to be 2 objects knotted together. A (refers to diagram) is a cord with two pendants, and c which is looped and tied to the primary cord. B is a cord with 8 pendants, some which have subsidiaries. The knots are all single knots. No obvious decimal arrangement. G. Urton determined that this is most like a modern herder's khipu or a middle horizon khipu and decided not to study it. All cotton, AB color
