[PyQt] MIMEdata and QVariant class problem

I have been trying to do drag and drop of icons using MIMEdata class. in my
code I have written:

image= event.mimeData().imageData().  Qt returns a QVariant type value after
executing this statement *(
http://doc.qt.nokia.com/qt-maemo-4.6/qmimedata.html#imageData*). Thus image
is a QVariant.

Now to get the imageData as QImage i need to use QVariant.value<QImage>()
 function like one below:

img= QtGui.QImage()
img= image.value<QImage>()

Here's the description:

But the problem is that whenever I run this I get the following error:

img= image.value<QtGui.QImage>()
AttributeError: 'QVariant' object has no attribute 'value'

Please tell me what is the reason for this error. kindly help me on this.
