Résumé / Abstract

The tocapu symbol system of Wari and Inca cultures belongs to the most impressive aspects of material culture of prehispanic South America. Although progress has been done in the past years the meaning and function of the tocapus remain unclear. This chapter presents new results about tocapus by analyzing a fragment of an Inca key checkerboard pattern tunic of the Linden Museum Stuttgart (Linden-Museum Stuttgart, Germany, 1167.771) which up to now never has been discussed in former publications (fig. la, reconstruction in fig. 1b). The results has been received by an iconographic analysis focusing on form and context of two prominent tocapu motifs, the so-called Inca key and the Inca diamond (Rowe 1979) (figs. 21a, 9). Discussion begins with an analysis that focus on the description of the design of the Inca key checkerboard pattern tunic of the Linden Museum under special consideration of the Inca key. Only one half of the tunic is preserved. The measurements of the fragment are about thirty-six centimeters by eighty-six centimeters. The pattern appears to be executed in four colors. The design consists of thirty yellow squares with red keys alternating with thirty purple squares with dark blue keys. The original tunic has been completely covered with keys, there were no stripes in the lower panel. The technique is interlocked tapestry. It is a Quompi weaving.
