Several associations spring to mind:

"van der" and "Stone" don't fit together very well.

The famous Dutch painter Jan Steen (John Stone(!)),
a master of colour and facial expressions lived
from 1626 to 1679. His 900 surviving works include
jovial scenes of eating, drinking and revelry.
That's okay with me.

We all know what a pre-historic hammer was made of.
Lars should be pretrified. That's Greek English for "turned to stone with fear".
