As it is written 2, is a large, bold artwork executed in acrylics and enamels. This artwork incorporates old documents, music scores and vintage postcards carefully collaged together to weave a story of the past. Ntshabele intends to preserve history, by creating his own surfaces to work on, recycling old historical documents into a new story.

The rural African mother appears to be instructing her daughter as she points a stick at past stories written in a time the young girl had never experienced. This juxtaposition of present rural life and a documented past reflected in postcards from the early 1900s, continues the narrative that our stories are universal no matter the time or place that separates our experiences.
