The image below is an example of Pastiche. Pastiche is similar but also different to a parody. A parody actually mimics and represents an image in a negative way. A pastiche reflects that previous image in the same way or even positively. In this image below is a representation of the film Silence of the Lambs. Anthony Hopkins is wearing a mask showing how dangerous he is and how evil he is. Mr. Burns is also wearing the mask as well comparing the evils together. The Simpsons do pastiches like this all the time with TV shows and movies.
