What can I add to a great masterpiece by, say, Da Vinci? If I add my own touch to it I substract from its perfection

What can I add to a great masterpiece by, say, Da Vinci? If I add my own touch to it I substract from its perfection. So too if we add our own works to the perfect, finished work of Christ on the Cross. To add is to substract. Just like viewing a Da Vinci painitng we ought to look, admire and gaze in wonder at the Cross; but never add to it.
