The image is exactly 50 inch x 50 inch symbolizing the 50 BTC reward subsidy as converted to pixels is 3600x3600 px which includes the day when bitcoin came to life and the number of blocks mined.

The Bitcoin blockchain came to life on January 3, 2009, and so far, more than 600,000 blocks have been mined into existence. Satoshi’s genesis block is special and the hardcoded block has a few unique characteristics compared to the rest of the chain of blocks that followed.
Satoshi brought the network to the world two months after publishing the whitepaper on October 31, 2008. The launch of the Bitcoin blockchain started with a hardcoded block called the ‘genesis block’ or ‘block zero.’
The block is unique because it has a 50 BTC reward subsidy that can never be spent.
