Merry-go-round


I'm sure this has been done before but I couldn't find a direct anticipation in Winchloe. Does anyone know of another example of this merry-go-round in two directions?

I am sure there are other examples, but I remember this one better...

Most of the examples that I know are “real” merry-go-rounds with a full circle of the two black pieces but those two are of the other sort like the one quoted by Michel.

Here the circle is a bit extended.

Thanks, Michel and Arno. Looks like my composition is mostly anticipated by Michel/Pierre's composition.

A version with a double full circle by the black bishop is possible, but it needs one extra white pawn.
