Distant Shores Ketubah
by Nishima Kaplan
Inspired by the wild, unspoiled beauty of California’s Big Sur coastline, “Distant Shores” was created by Nishima near the coastal village of Carmel-on-the-Sea as she sat in a field of wildflowers on a windswept cliff overlooking the pristine Pacific shores. A perfect match for couples who are planning a beach or ocean-side ceremony, “Distant Shores” captures the romance of your wedding day with a view of the many happy years which lie ahead. Each limited edition ketubah is created using a special technique that is overseen at every stage by the Artist herself. “Distant Shores” has a “powdery” pastel texture that is evocative of the original artwork. Certain to become the centerpiece of any room, “Distant Shores” is a timeless reminder of your commitment to each other.
