No doubt about it, there are good icons, and there are bad icons. Your wine
icons sound like really good ones. The smaller the size and the lower the
bit depth, the more skill is involved in representing a concept... and
perhaps the fewer concepts that can be represented in that space.
16x16 black and white, for example, can do a decent job with things like
hand/pointer/text/lasso cursors, ascending and descending sorts, left,
right, home, confirm, cancel, document, application, wine type, etc. But
advanced concepts like "having a picnic in the forest" probably not.
Of course, context matters a lot too.
