Parque de las Ciencias, Spain.

The Droste effect is also known as mise en abyme, or more simply, “a picture within a picture”. A series of nested, precisely drawn images give the appearance that the artwork goes on into infinity. This mind-bending video dissembles one of MC Escher’s works, displaying the artist’s mastery of this trippy effect in incredibly minute detail.
