Maybe you could use the Data entry for images:

So, I guess you're packaging your application along with Qt and PyQt in a
bundle and I assume that support for images is built as plugins, and I'm
guessing that some misconfiguration is causing this to fail.

The QLibraryInfo class and your resource files are two separate things - I
assume that by "resources" you mean you compiled your image files to Python
modules using pyrcc4. Is that the case?
