Rectangle can be used to embed one graphics object in another.
Try something like this:

    Show[mainplot, Epilog->Rectangle[{x1,y1},{x2,y2},subplot]]

where {x1,y1} are the coordinates of the lower-left hand corner
of the rectagle, and {x2,y2} are the coords of the upper right-hand corner,
and mainplot and subplot are graphics objects.  The coordinates are
expressed in the coordinate system of mainplot.
