An Ego-likeness was the portraiture of one or more people, reproduced through a shigawire projector, that was capable of showing subtle movements said to convey the mannerisms and ego essence of the subjects.

During his reign as Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV kept a collection of Ego-likeness projections he called his Hall of Portraits that featured various prominent figures, including Duke Leto Atreides I.

The Bene Gesserit Sisterhood also possessed a similar hall of portraits of people throughout history. When the Bashar Miles Teg examined the ego-likeness of the long-dead Duke Leto, he likened the experience as looking into a mirror.
