Is there any possibility to color the surface of the Box of a Graphic3D[]?

Show[Graphics3D[Sphere[]], ViewPoint -> Above, 
BoxStyle -> Directive[Large, Orange, Thick]]

I need to color the surface of the Box. (Like a wall).

Not with BoxStyle:

Show[{Graphics3D[Sphere[], PlotRange -> {{-1, 1}, {-1, 1}, {-1, 1}}], 
      Graphics3D[{FaceForm[Green], Cuboid[{-1, -1, -1}, {1, 1, 5}]}]}, 
    ViewPoint -> Above]

Mathematica graphics

thanks, it is possible to add a texture – phdstudent Nov 8 '13 at 23:03
@phdstudent You should better use Polygon for that. See the help for Texture[] – Dr. belisarius Nov 8 '13 at 23:17
