Optical Reflection



Top René Magritte, La Reproduction Interdit (1937)
Bottom Rokeby Venus, René Magritte (1651)

Images of imaginary vanity. I am wondering: How is the phenomenon called depicting a mirror image that is seemingly endlessly multiplied in itself? Who knows the technical term and can name examples of its appearance in popular culture?
