This is the result of reduction printing, which means that the print consists of multiple colors but only using a single block. You do this by carving away the sections once they are printed. This print consists of eight colors, but as I have found myself see that more colors means more detailed. Just make sure that each of the layers are dried before printing the next layer. Smudges can ruin a great print or if still super wet the block will not stay once the pressure of the press hits.
So, I hope that this inspires you art lovers or helps you appreciate printmaking; I know that I have :)
