before my seeing comments: My solution [arrived to through the 32-pixel moving-pieces setting and submitted in a style the honorable problemist was imitating on 2018-11-09 08:29:17]: to force black king toward eastmost pawns before moving only west knight and queen and mate in third move, white's nafive starts

A typical Bohemian problem without any wPs showing four model mates. The key threatens 2. Nc4+ 3. Qf8# (model mate) and on 1.. Kf5 2. Qf8+ Ke5 3. Nc6# (model mate) as well as 1.. Kf4 2. Qf6+ Ke3 3. Nc4# (model mate). A slightly dualistic variation is 1.. Re4 2. Qxg5+ Kd6 3. Nxe4# or Nb5#, and finally 2.. Kd4 3. Nb5# (model mate). The light white position invites the solver.
