Graphics text showing through 3D plots

Hello all.

Is there a way to render graphics text in a 3D plot so that it is hidden by surfaces in front of it?  For example, this plot shows an "x" in a plot of Sin[xy].  Now, when I rotate it, the x shows through the plot when the surface is covering it.

g1 = Plot3D[Sin[x*y], {x, -1, 1}, {y, -1, 1}]
text = Graphics3D[Text[StyleForm["-x", 
           FontSize -> 18, FontWeight -> 
             "Heavy"], {-0.5, -0.5, -0.5}]]; 
Show[{g1, text}]
