This idea of repeating a similar shape (often at a different scale) over and over again, is called self-similarity. In other words, a self-similar image contains copies of itself at smaller scales. A simple example appears in Figure 2: a repeated pattern for a square that is copied, rotated and shrunk by a factor of 1/√2.
