This is an encaustic piece, which means the paint is layered and fused with beeswax. The beeswax, while creating depth in the piece, also serves as a protectant to keep the colors vibrant.
Ancient Greeks used encaustics in their art and the colors remain as vibrant today as when they were first created.
