An earlier version:
3q1bsr/1ppspppp/3p1k2/pr6/7K/7b/PPPPP1PP/RSBR2S1
SPG 12.5

In this version, the knight makes the same switchback twice (Sg1-f3-g1-f3-g1) but it lacks the king switchback, and the knight switchback is more visible (in the published version, the knight doesn’t necessarily have to move to reach the diagram position).

Double switchback of the knight is very nice!
