A collective work

As a souvenir, a friend held a party before his depart of Paris and prepared a huge tissue for everyone to put something on. "Remember, the objective to make something jolie (nice)!" His request for everyone who put their hands on the "canvas", then I stick the label of Heineken next to the handprint with three lines... after a fight, I won and the label stayed! The result of this collaborative work is surprisingly beautiful.

How far is this work from Francis Picabia's L'Oeil cacodylate (1921), except that the signatures are not Tristan Tzara, Isadona, Suzanne Duchamp, etc.?
