Saint Fabiola

I'm digging this exhibition by artist, Francis Alÿs that is about to go up at Switzerland's Schaulager Museum. This from the site:
'Fabiola' is Alÿs's collection of over 370 reproduced renditions of jean-jacques henner's 1885 portrait of saint Fabiola. Most of the pieces are paintings on canvas, but others are needlework or painted on velvet or other materials. All are amateur creations, collected by Alÿs over the course of fifteen years from flea markets, junk stores, and estates.
