Hi - I have a question regarding the superposition of two
3d objects in Mathematica.  The basic picture is of a bump
rotating on a sphere.  By generating a bump at different 
positions on the sphere and concatenating the images, I 
can make a movie of the bump rotating.  However, what I
really need is a stationary (non-rotating) sphere with 
a bump rotating on top of it.  I've tried generating the
sphere and bump separately and superposing them, but the
bump graphic 'erases' the sphere.  What I need is to be 
able to 'see through' the polygons that generate the bump
graphic to the stationary sphere in the center.  Is there
a way to superpose two graphics like this?  I apologize
if this is unclear, but I'm not a mathematica user myself;
I'm asking this for someone who doesn't have access to the
Best Regards,
