From monodoc 'public Pixbuf (System.IO.Stream stream)'

/* buffer containing an image */
System.Byte[] buffer = new System.Byte[256];

/* create a memory stream to the buffer */
System.IO.MemoryStream memorystream = new System.IO.MemoryStream(buffer);    

/* create a pixbuf from the stream as if it was a file */
Gdk.Pixbuf pb = new Gdk.Pixbuf(memorystream);
