HUMAN AND BUILDING
The first paragraph of the upper part reports Vitruvius: "Vetruvio, architect, puts in his work on architecture that the measurements of man are
in nature distributed in this manner, that is:
•a palm is four fingers
•a foot is four palms
•a cubit is six palms
•four cubits make a man
•a pace is four cubits
•a man is 24 palms
and these measurements are in his buildings". The second paragraph reads: "if you open your legs enough that your head is lowered by onefourteenth of your height and raise your hands enough that your extended fingers touch the line of the top of your head, know that the centre of the
extended limbs will be the navel, and the space between the legs will be an equilateral triangle".
