not bad.

Utterly pointless. What's the point to using clay figures? Why is the art not working harder, so the copy can be less prescriptive? Let's put some effort into our craft again.

The point is that we can shape children's lives -like they were made of clay- if we understand them better.

I appreciate the explanation, but why not show the act of shaping then? Or a more dramatic visualization of it, instead of static figures which are simply dull portraits? It's not that it's a bad idea, it's just a terrible execution.
