This drawing was based on a photograph of a Quipu.
Quipus are a way of recording information from the Inca Empire, they may have been a personal mnemonic device or a form of coded writing but no one is quite sure. They are made from knotted coloured threads and string and historians haven't completely deciphered them yet, so naturally I am quite obsessed by them.
