Most Amazing Mind-Bending Photos (17 pics)

After searching long and hard, we present to you the most amazing mind-bending photos of the web. Be forewarned, if you stare at these images for too long, you may feel yourself getting pulled into the frame, resulting in dizziness, and the explosion of your brain.

The technical term for this illusion is the “Droste effect,” named after a 1904 package of Droste brand cocoa. A picture exhibiting the Droste effect depicts a smaller version of itself in a place where a similar picture would realistically be expected to appear. This smaller version then depicts an even smaller version of itself in the same place, and then goes on and on.
