Yes, it is a little picture of a man with his index finger over his mouth.

The character for "silence" that you usually see in libraries etc. is pronounced "jing" (falling tone.) The character is built out of two other characters - "qing" meaning "green" and "zheng" meaning "struggle." It consists of 14 strokes of the pen. Sorry I can't show you what it looks like here.
