Further analysis of the wall painting by the project's paint conservators revealed that the painting was not made using a fresco technique (painting on wet, freshly applied plaster), but instead it was applied sometime after the plaster had cured. The fact that the design was painted sometime after the room was plastered suggests that the wall painting was not part of the original design of the room, but was instead applied a few years later.
