Change the way you look at your desktop. Get carefully crafted, bright and clean icon-theme for Gnome Desktop.
Shadow is a flat icon-theme for gnome 3.10+. The icons have a colourful circular base with long shadow.
Missing icon request: Please try https://www.opendesktop.org/p/1210642/ script which is a simple python script to get missing icons from your installation.
The script searches for apps in /usr/share/applications directory and if any icon name is missing from the `Shadow`, it puts the corresponding file from /usr/share/icons in /tmp/missingicons dir.
Kindly let me know if this is helpful.
