Steller's Jay by Alaskan artist Francois Girard is a 3.5" x 3.5" wood block print.
I've only been treated to a couple of visits by a Steller's Jay in the 25 years I have live in the Matanuska Valley. I see them often further south and lament that they are not a regular visitor to my yard so when I see one I am so appreciative of their presence. They just have a great design with their extra little touch of blue on their forehead.
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.
