This appears to be the answer to me. I bet the comb is attached to the pot, not the ground, and can eazily be removed if the pot is turned over.Welcome to Beesource!
From the photo, the hive appears to be a closed clay container of some sort. If you choose to open it (or perhaps cut or break it open) you can move combs to a regular hive with frames. Rubber bands around the frames can hold the combs in place until the bees attach the combs to the frames. On Beesource this process is referred to as a "cut out".
