iirc Mr. Do might have been working with an actual Circus bezel many years earlier. His past artwork wip announcements mention of which source the various artwork items came from including the Circus bezel.

Circus along with a few other various bezel pieces of games made in 1970s era used backlit lamps that illuminated portions of a bezel piece as either for attract mode, but some were also utilized during gameplay to help provide status to the person playing the arcade game. I don't remember if the backlit lamps were involved with Circus gameplay or just random attract mode element visual aesthetics.
