You are really talking about a label and not a description. Descriptions are
longer descriptions of the object other than a label which alt is.

for example, rather than alt use: 
<img src="foo.jpg" aria-label="Lady of the Lake"/>

You could simply tell browsers to render the label when images were turned off.

You don't require a labelledby relationship either.
