Crab: Spectral Figure

I downloaded these images from (I think) a personal web site at CMU in December of 1998. I have lost all other information about them.

"My dreams are haunted by a spectral Figure With empty eyes... Around his neck he wears the Claw of the CRAB..."

Another reference to Morpheus? Is the figure the conqueror of the crab, or the crab's avatar? What is the signifcance of the fully upper case "CRAB"?
