Here is the Python/GTK way to do this, for what it is worth:

from sugar.datastore import datastore
        #my_dsobject is of type datastore.DSObject
        #object_id is a datastore object
        my_dsobject = datastore.get(object_id)

        pixbufloader = gtk.gdk.pixbuf_loader_new_with_mime_type('image/png')
        #Access the 'preview' property
        #Note that the preview image is 300x225
        pixbuf = pixbufloader.get_pixbuf()
