Is there a place where I can download the icons that are used in unity?

I wish to use them for a web page project in school.
I will be emulating the Ubuntu desktop for the purpose.
If you could include default wallpapers that would be great too!

    You can find them within the Ubuntu install itself. Icons can be found in a variety of places, but many of them are in the folder /usr/share/icons/Humanity/apps. Here, you can click on the folders to open up icons with the resolution listed on the folder label. As for the wallpapers, they can be found in /usr/share/backgrounds. Apr 27, 2012 at 19:32

You'll find a lot here:



Here's a blog post that includes all of Ubuntu's default wallpapers from 4.10 to 13.10: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/09/a-look-back-at-every-ubuntu-default-wallpaper

You can find the icons in /usr/share/icons on your Ubuntu installation.

You'll also find a lot of icons, themes, wallpapers for GNOME & Unity here at http://gnome-look.org
