From the same square in b, c, and d, take a piece. Place these pieces in diagram a (at least one of them has to be placed on c4). Now take 3 pieces from a, and place these pieces on the same square in b, c and d, in such a way that no promoted pieces are in those diagrams. What symbolism can you see on the 4 boards? Now play a h#1 on board a, and in the other 3 boards, take a piece and place it on another square, so that black is mated. The piece has to be taken from and placed on the same square in each 3 diagrams. What symbolism can you see now?
