As far as I understand you can not display graphics as you do in latex 
with \includegraphics ... However, I'm not absolutely sure and I think 
it would be a great feature if it one could.

So your options are to convert the eps/pdf in to an ipe file or into a 
bitmapp (jpg/png).
For the first case use pdftoipe and my experience is that in most cases, 
it works well.
