Your image shows in Chrome but not in IE 8
Saving the .jpg file locally and attempting to open it in IE 8 produces the same results.
This leads me to believe that the file was saved with some JPEG options that are not supported by IE 8.

I converted your logo to a different JPG type and it seems to open now.

Looks like a possible bug in IE.

from what I see, a lion and a unicorn? the image at the top seems to be working.
though your page is full of errors.
