Marcus Vitruvius, author of "De Architectura," was a Roman architect in 1 BCE. His book was the authority on these subjects up through the Renaissance, and still has influences in modern architecture today.
The concept of the Vitruvian Man and by extension, our Vetruvian Crawfish, begins in Book III.
"... in the human body the central point is naturally the navel. For if a man can be placed flat on his back, with his hands and feet extended, and a pair of compasses centered at his navel, the fingers and toes of his two hands and feet will touch the circumference of a circle described therefrom. And just as the human body yields a circular outline, so too a square figure may be found from it." - Marcus Vitruvius
