    While they’re nice pics they’re not really the Droste effect, except for the first two.

    The Droste effect is named so for the following reason. Droste is a Dutch cocoa company. They sold their cocoa in a tin with a picture of a lady holding a trey with a cup of hot chocolate and the can of Droste on it (which in turn had the same image on it)

    Here’s an image of the can.
