-->"No pencil is sharp enough to draw as fine as you can think, and no paper large enough to hold your imagination. In fact, it is only in the mind that we can conceive infinity."
* In the ''WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel'' episode "I Are Legend", Weasel realizes that people are watching him on TV, and at one point, we see him standing next to a TV with an image of the scene on the screen, leading to this trope.

** In ''Discworld/EqualRites'', Simon conjures an image of the Discworld which is amazingly accurate, right down to an image of Simon conjuring an image of the Discworld, and so on.

Esk is also fascinated by this effect when cleaning a bathroom in the University; she has an uneasy feeling that one of the multiple reflections, in the very edge of perception, is waving back at her.

* The book of ''Literature/TheNeverendingStory'' was about a book which became the literary version of this trope, when the person writing the book was ordered to read the very same book they were writing, and they had to keep writing what they were reading while they were reading it, making the story literally never-ending (hence the title). The endless loop can only be broken by Bastion accepting that he can take control and change the story.

* In ''Film/HotFuzz'', the shot of Simon Skinner's [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-g-C8IjYMyUA/VYSlSj2_4fI/AAAAAAAATW0/ZRG4zyOjP4I/s1600/Timothy+Dalton+Hot+Fuzz.PNG smiling face in front of a photo of himself smilin.g]] A more easily missed example occurs in the very first shot of the film, when Nicholas Angel marches up to the camera and, scowling, holds up his badge, which has the same scowl. Both shots were made by copying a frame from the film and pasting it onto the photo, so these are true droste images and not just similar.

** The Dutch mathematicians [[http://escherdroste.math.leidenuniv.nl/index.php?menu=intro Bart de Smit and Hendrik Lenstra]] calculated that the blank area at the center would contain a copy of the original picture (scaled down by a factor of 22.5 and rotated by 158 degrees), and created a version where the blank area is filled (as well as many variants thereof with different curvatures).

Newer cans did away with this, although a vector drawing of a hand holding the paint can be seen.
