This is described in the very useful book "Mathematica, a practical
approach" of Nancy Blachman, on page 69-70. This is the example given:
In[9]:= test = Plot[Sin[x], {x,0,2Pi},
	DisplayFunction -> Identity];
In[10]:= Show[Graphics[{
		Line[{{#[[1]], 0}, #}]&,
		Nest[First, test, 4]
	]}], Axes -> Automatic];

This does the trick.
