Consider the intersection of a horizontal plane with the surface.

The intersection consists of a family of funny curves.

(An example curve is shown below. It has nothing to do with the answer.)

Cut off the upper surface above the horizontal plane to get a funny 3D image.

(This curve is obtained from another surface.)
