The artist's original image number - 152 - and subject's name and club are handwritten below the design. A sheet of tracing paper, with grid lines and references, folds over the artwork which has been signed and dated by the artist. The image is included in a tapestry celebrating 150 years of performances and events on the MCG. Wiiliams played 34 games for Geelong Football Club (1984-85); 107 games for Sydney (1986-91) - as depicted in Ingpen's image - where he won his first Brownlow Medal; and, 109 games for Carlton (1992-97) where he won his second Brownlow.
