"Spiritual Bounds" is an original pastel drawing on paper by Della Wells. The artist signed the piece in the lower right. This work depicts a woman with a snake wrapped around her arm as she reaches for an apple. The symbolism indicates that the woman is an Eve figure tempted by the snake to eat the apple. There is an eye on the woman's body as well as on the building behind her and on the right hand side of the picture. The eyes represent the all-seeing eye of God. A black figure flies through the air, holding the Egyptian ankh.
