Only Cell L5 breaks this rule, as noted above, surely because of the excavators’ concern about the leaky flaw advised against pairing it with the “normal” Cell R5. The front walls of Cave 1’s cells all have the “early” thinness one would expect in about 468–9, about the time when the first cells were undertaken in the B mode. Except for the subsequently completed Cell R1, and the obviously late (D mode) left court cells, all were supplied with monolithic projecting door fittings of the types 6 Such adjustments to the positioning of cells is discussed in the commentary on Cave 17 below.

44 chapter five refuse it for another two hundred years—it may reflect the motifs at the entrance of the beautiful Cave 19, where crowns are held aloft over Buddhas at either side of the door. A crown being offered is also the central motif of the porch doorway of Cave 24, a design datable to 477, which is considerably more developed than that of Cave 2—and revealing the speed of developments at the site. Cave 2’s windows, unlike the doorway, go far beyond the oldfashioned Cave 1 types. Like those in Caves 5 and U6, where the earlier evidence is still intact (and Cave 4, where it is not), they must have originally been cut out as smaller vertically oriented forms, typical of the pre-Recession period.

They would have been roughed out by 470/471, by which time this part of the cave was well under excavation; we know this from the character of the original C-mode fittings (with projections above and below) in all of the cave’s rear cells. The shape of the antechamber brackets is very revealing of their origins—of the fact that they were defined by the excavators before the Hiatus occurred. This is because of the manner in which the female figures are cut so closely to the pillars; they do not project outward like their counterparts in Cave 2, which were cut later, with the female brackets planned from the start.
