Other random thoughts:
#1 Are the moon phases supposed to be "cross paired" or "in sequence"... if they were supposed to be sequenced then they're off... (swap one of the diagonal pairs and it works, I'd suggest 1-right of the paw and 1-left of the hand be swapped)
#2 The "base platform shadow" seems to make it "fuzz/blur out". Putting a highlighting edge on the bottom level of the platform may help make it feel better.
#3 Intersperse the moon phases with statues maybe?
