In this paper, an unsupervised model-based texture reproduction technique is described. In accordance with the Julesz's conjecture, the statistical properties of the prototype up to the second order are copied in order to generate a synthetic texture perceptually indistinguishable from the given sample. However, this task is accomplished using a hybrid approach which operates partially in the spatial domain and partially in a multiresolution domain. The latter employed is the circular harmonic function (CHF) domain since it has been proven to be well suited for mimicking the behavior of the human visual system (HVS). This approach allows, for a wide range of textures typologies, obtaining synthetic textures that better match the prototype with respect to the ones obtained using techniques based on the Julesz's conjecture operating only in the spatial domain, and to dramatically reduce the computational complexity of similar methods operating only in the multiresolution domain.
