I am not sure if this is what you want, but if you want an icon list
widget, you can use the GnomeIconList.

If you want to do semi-complex drawing and you don't want to define a
new widget, you can use the GnomeCanvas -- it is basically a port of
Tk's canvas widget, with some added niceties like hierarchical groups
