    In a variety of places. Application icons (like iCal, Finder etc) are stored within the Application bundle. They are not stored in a single central locations. A lot of other icons are mostly stored within the CoreTypes bundle in /System/Library/CoreServices/

    There is not an or the application bundle. Every application is a bundle. So iCal.app is a bundle as is Finder.app, Safari.app and so on. You can open any bundle by right clicking on it and clicking on Show Package Contents.

    Note changing any of the contents of a bundle may effect the ability of the program to execute (if the bundle is signed using code signing) or the whole OS to work if you mess up anything in /System/Library.
