Sapien could be used with the standard human icons, or an entirely new set.  Some of the information not on the palette is:

Sapien

Sapien is a possible visual overhaul for Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex. The basic principle is to use gradients and transparencies within the windows to create a smooth, intuitive interface. Windows should appear as single units, as opposed to a collection of tool bars. What this principle means from a design perspective is using as few solid lines within the windows as is possible. Any contributions should conform to the palette I've provided, although I may update this to the standard Ubuntu colors eventually.

Concept

Sapien could be used with the standard human icons, or an entirely new set.

Palette

Changes to pallete: font is now FreeSans, sizes are the same.
