Well it's not just a plain photo of a horse, but indeed nothing spectacular,, but then again a snowman missing his carrot and stones or these that were submitted here

Personal Opinion Here:
It's not about being glamorous or not, it's about filling a twofold need.

1: It's a statement, "This is fedora"

No. We are talking about avatars, the statement told by an avatar is
"this is *me*". Avatars represent people and they should fit a number of
person types.

2: Give  users an artistic experience, with provisos.
   a) It doesn't distract them
   b) They understand it, without the need for a written explanation.

Nope. An avatar is supposed to stand-out, to help you recognize your
personality from a bung of people (your login in the face browser, your
account in the user switcher, etc.)
