Mathematica apprentice

My gravatar was made with the following Mathematica code:

Graphics3D[{
  GrayLevel[.3], Specularity[White, 15],
  Lighting -> {{"Directional", 
     RGBColor[.3, .3, .4], {{5, 5, 10}, {5, 5, 0}}},
    {"Point", Black, {12, 3, 15}},  
    {"Point", White, {12, 3, 4}}},
  KnotData[{"TorusKnot", {2, 5}}, "ImageData"]}, 
 ViewVector -> {{0, 0, 5}, {0, 0, 0}}, Boxed -> False, 
 Background -> None, Axes -> False, ImageSize -> 1000]

comment I'm definitely giving an integer, but I get Nest::intnm
perhaps you want Dynamic[Plot[... rather than Plot[..Dynamic[its]]?

@GaryPalmer Ah, slider is Symbol until the Manipulate expression changes, but with that semicolon after it it doesn't evaluate immediately?

slider has head Graphics but stationaryObj has head Graphics3D, so you can't combine them with Show.

@kuba Yes, you're right. But we must leave something for the OP to do?! :) (And it might be a bit more difficult...)
