Depends on how the artist handles it.  You can create
the originals cheaper as well - and someone who wants
to always have the latest will now have a steady
demand for service, since any object that has been
around for a while might have been duplicated.  This
has been true for a while; it's just moreso now.  And
that doesn't even begin to touch the new things once
can do with old art forms that used to be impractical.
(Like, say, do you want lines of faces all along every
major inner wall of your cathedral, each one different
but in a certain pattern that lends utility as well as
aesthetics?  Not only is it cheaper, but the pattern
can be more precise...)
