Does anyone know the source of this position?

I picked up this position somewhere and had it marked as a possible draw.
After letting SF DEV chew on it, it found a win (Syzygy score) at ply 50 in 28m and found a mate in 32 at ply 69 in 1h25m. There might be a faster mate but I stopped the search.
I7-6700K @ 4.00Ghz, 3 cores, 8Gb hash, 5-man Syzygy.
The published move of Kd1 is correct.
