Icons needed

I'd like your suggestions on icons that represent:

  • culture

  • energy (emphasis on renewable, preferably an animated GIF like the Biology icon I made)

  • economy


Anybody?

economy - how about all the "facepalm" pics from recent stock market photos? =P

Inverted prosperity
I think this one ("fortune" upside down, per the Chinese visual pun) can double for that.

I probably do need a *facepalm* icon, though.

I use this one when talking about financial matters, but I would suspect it's too general for your needs. And not global, as it's USD.

Novus Ordo Seclorum
And "Annuit Coeptis" are pretty cool, if you think about it. We're all carrying around little Masonic pamplets in our pocketses.

*sigh* I need a "history" icon, too. This one just doesn't cut it. Trask GJ for dying. I was all set with those 2000 icons.

Hmm...
Culture... I'm evil, but all I can think of is a petri dish.

Energy... How about windmills?

Economy... I like the idea of coins. Actually, I really like the image at this Falkirk Local History Society.

Re: Hmm...
Culture: AUUUUUGHRA. What happened?! Has gondhir infected yew?! Wheeeeenh...

Energy: Windmills, yes, but I'd laso like solar panels and mebbe nukular and coal. I have yet to see a good depiction of geothermal or tidal (the pic of Salter's ducks from the Usborne Book of the Future works, but it doesn't translate well to icon size).

Coins: Hrm, looks interesting. I might go for the gold rather than the Falkirk hoard, but yes. I was thinking an aniGIF with banking involved, but just a static image of coins is good for a start.

Thanks again,
Banazir

Um. Okay. I'll blame Graham. (Actually, I'm channelling my father's sense of humor, but his is similar to Graham's in several areas, so yeah, I'll blame Graham.)

Could be worse, you know. I could have suggested Boy George. (I would link to google images, but dang, he's scary looking.)

Salter's ducks? Are they anywhere on these pages?

Heh. If I had any drawing abilities, my animated gif would be like this: ATM card in, cash out. Ad infinitum. Except not. It would then say "Game over. Play again? Insert $700,000,000."
