At 8.9kg (over 20 pounds), this is a big stone.

From a low angle, it is difficult to recognize the stone's depth from front-to-back, but we can imagine the stone's depth from its weight. I hope it is "twisting" in 3 dimensions.

The first image I imagine is of a twisting bird looking over its shoulder. This is the classic pose of the male quail in painting & figural (e.g., Japanese okimomo) pairs of the male & female. The male bird is perhaps protecting his spouse with a watchful eye-- looking behind himself (& "over," if not "at," her) on their ground perch. The female appears subordinate in size & posture. While intended to express noble feelings of hierarchial roles, it could be seen as a bit of male posturing/posing.
