It was tempting to go full Morton Salt :-)

Okay, I could have sworn that Morton Salt once had an infinitely recursive image but I can't find it . . . so maybe I made that up??

I think you were right originally. It's apparently called "the Droste effect", and the image on the Morton salt packaging does depict a much reduced image of the container within itself.

And here's another mention of Morton Salt doing it along with Cracker Jacks and Land O'Lakes.

Thanks a lot! I'd never heard the term the Droste effect.
