The Great Avebury Challenge - Avebury Stone #10 Back Side Photograph

The Great Avebury Challenge - Avebury Stone #10
Back Side Photograph by Andis Kaulins
For starters.... and to flex your creative muscles.... This is a tough one.
Could the whole stone be seen as a head facing either left OR right, with a pelt hat?
The top half of the stone is lighter in color than the bottom -- is that difference intentional?
Do you see the deep notches in the upper half? If intentionally cut, why was that done?
Does the upper left half look like a camel head (or wing) and the right half like a bird's head?
Does the bottom quarter of the stone look a bit like the outline of a boat? 
How many faces can you envision in the top half of the stone? large and small?
