Puffin by Alaskan artist Francois Girard is a 3.5" x 3.5" or a 5" x 5" wood block.

I often see Horned Puffins at the far end of Resurrection Bay here in Alaska on cliff faces that shoot straight up from the ocean.  They seem very inquisitive when the boat passes by.  They are by far one of the cutest birds.

This piece comes with a hole in the back so its ready to hang! “Bird Blocks” add color and beauty to small spaces. 3.5” x 3.5” “Bird Blocks” look great in clusters hung on the wall or are free standing. 
All the Blocks are handmade by the artist. The image is printed with archival ink on archival 100% cotton paper and adhered to a beautiful piece of 3/4" deep poplar wood using archival methods. The image will not fade for over a 150 years if kept out of direct sunlight. After the print is mounted two different UV varnishes are used to protect the surface. This gives the piece a wonderful smooth satin surface. 
To ensure your blocks bring you many years of enjoyment, please follow these suggestions:
Handle blocks on the sides to ensure no damage occurs to the image.
Keep out of direct sunlight.
Dust with a soft cloth.
