need help finding files

ive had linux mint for a month or so now and i am still not really comfortable with finding my way around the file system.
i was wondering if anyone could tell me where i might find the splash screen images that are displayed during startup and login?

A quick google search for Grub boot splash images turned up a few hits..

Looks like they will be somewhere under the /boot/ directory

all 3 links seem to be helpful, but there were no image files in the boot folder or grub folder contain within it...
I'll have a proper look when i get in from work.
