GNOME Folder Icon

I would find it to be more effective to use personal images to represent specific folders, instead of using text. How do I change one and only one folder icon into another image, and I don't mean emblems?

If this is not possible with GNOME, is this possible with another Window Manager?

thank you

Context menu (right mouse button) -> properties -> click on the folder symbol -> choose a file.
Do you mean something like that?
