I don't know what "robie" is, so here's the generic answer: Inkscape uses icons from the global desktop icon theme if available (depends on icon name), or from the stock icons provided by the GTK+ stack if no desktop gtk icon theme is defined (e.g. with Windows or Mac packages).

Oh, and there is no simple way to override the stock icons (seen in the screenshot), unless you e.g. provide a custom gtk icon theme with those icons, too.

Feature request to optionally allow to always use Inkscape's own icons:
- Bug #789804 “Add an option to use full set of custom icons”
