I also like it.  OTOH, it reminds me a little of the Saturday morning
(or maybe everyday?) block of kids shows mascot (JETIX[1]).  Some JETIX
images without the feet:  [2] and [3].

When looking at the bottom of the winning example page[4], I like the
look of the two overlapping images in the bottom-left.  It almost
appears that the bottom layer logo has grown a tail.
