Recursive Mona

One of the ideas presented in Mona Mosaics was to break down an image into square areas at different scales where the colour doesn't vary much. A natural extension of this is to redraw a tinted version of the original image inside each square. Repeat a few times and you get a version of the starting image built recursively from smaller and smaller versions of itself. Here is an example of the concept applied again to the Mona Lisa.
