A translation of the tocapu embroidered incription on another inca ceremonial garment (tb01.jpg)
, though I'm presently less confident of this one...
It seems to say:High, initiated (in the path of wisdom) spiritual priest/wizard.
I'm also trying to organize a working glossary
of deciphered Tocapu symbols. Some of the "logic" behind the decipherment process is given there. (Basically, William Burns Glynn noticed that the early colonial chronicler Guaman Puna d'Ayala seemed to use repetative symbols (quilcas) in drawing the tocapu belts present on his drawings of various Inca nobility. It turns out that elements of these symbols are really present in the actual tocapu of actually Inca-era garments). Anyway, this all is presented in tabular form in that working glossary
spreadsheet that I've started to put together.
And other tocapu laden garments to take a crack at are given at: http://www.geocities.com/denniskriz/tocapu-project.html
