Khipu Database Project

AS114 and AS123

AS123 is said to be from Ica and AS114 from the area between Ica and Pisco. Imbedded in these large khipu is a matching sequence of ten numbers. AS114 has 339 pendants, and AS123 has 70. On AS114 the sequence begins with pendant 40, and on AS123 with pendant 41. In each case the ten pendants are all the same color, and use a different color than the cords immediately surrounding them.
