Take a look at GetIcon in
for a more "correct" was to render icons. For example, I'm pretty sure
you shouldn't be creating a new style object.

Looking at the stetic-generated code, it appears that the icons are
registered in the first call to Stetic.Gui.Initialize(Gtk.Widget),
which is called from every stetic-generated Build method. Hence, if
you want to use the icon before instantiating any stetic widget or
window, you should call Stetic.Gui.Initialize(null).
