It’s mainly about the guard of c3+c4 by LIc6, and the guard of d3+e4 by LIg6. The lions can switch lines to mate still guarding c4/e4, with Black blocking c3/d4 (1st pair); or they can switch lines to mate still guarding c3/d3, with Black blocking c4/e4 (2nd pair); or they can enable S mates on c6/f5 by moving to the other end of the guarding lines so that the guards by RLc8/BLh7 are eliminated, with Black blocking d5 so that Se7 is free to move (3rd pair).
Rich and harmonious.
