Replacing profile image with "profile" on the main navigation

I believe the widget that is responsible for the profile image nav item is “user-dropdown”, so I am trying to modify it but I do not see where the image are being assigned. here is as far as I went.

any help is appreciated.

<script type="text/discourse-plugin" version="0.8">
  const h = require("virtual-dom").h;
    api.reopenWidget("user-dropdown", {
      html(attrs) {
          return h(
              attributes: {
                href: 'attrs.user.get("path")',
                "data-auto-route": true
            this.attach("header-notifications", attrs)
