Creates a gtk.Image displaying the given animation. The gtk.Image does not assume a reference to the animation; you still need to unref it if you own references. gtk.Image will add its own reference rather than adopting yours.

Note that the animation frames are shown using a timeout with G_PRIORITY_DEFAULT When using animations to indicate busyness, keep in mind that the animation will only be shown if the main loop is not busy with something that has a higher priority.
