Khipu Notes

**Ascher Databook Notes:**

- This khipu is one of several acquired by the Museum in 1904 with provenance between Ica and Pisco. For a discussion of them, see UR1098.
- By markers and spacing, the khipu is separated into 4 parts. Part 1 is 4 groups of 12, 11, 11, 10 pendants, respectively; part 2 is 5 groups of 12 pendants each; part 3 is 5 groups of 11 pendants each; and part 4 is 1 pair of pendants.
- Each of the 14 groups in parts 1, 2, and 3 have the same color pattern. The pattern is 4W, FB: W, MB: W, and then as many W as needed to complete the group.
- All pendant values in the last 4 groups of part 3 are zero-valued (or blank). In all 10 preceding groups, the pendant in position 1 has maximum value.
