Open a new document. Make sure there's nothing in it. Erase any terrains, planes or anything else in it leaving only the camera. Insert a stone and a symmetrical lattice. Resize both, so that the stone would be smaller then the lattice. Use the Orthogonal views, to position the stone inside the lattice, and the camera inside the stone.
