A Perfect Echo

ChessPosition (see diagram)
White to move and checkmate in 4.
There are two solutions. The second is an echo of the first one.
Echo mate refers to a chess problem in which one variation leads to a checkmate position that is a duplicate of another variation. In this case however, the duplicate is perfect, so it's an exact echo.

A Perfect Echo - complition

I have to give you some further details:
The duplicate can be a translation echo (the pieces are all shifted a row or a file), or a reflection echo (all of the pieces are a mirror image of another mate), or a rotation echo (the final mate is a 90 degree turn of another mate).
In this relatively simple mate in four, there is an exact translation echo.
