[Typo3] Get Flexform data with TypoScript

Hello list,


TV is in use. On page level there is some FCE's, i.e. field_status.
A menu of pages is needed. That's easy enough. In this menu, an icon with 
the use of the field_status is needed.
field_status has 3 different values (depending on the dropdown selected 
editing the page header):
new, standard, old

How would i prepend the menu with an icon called: icon_new / icon_standard / 
icon_old depending the status in the flexform? And only through typoscript?

My alternative nasty version is to make a userfunc with a PHP function, 
which retrieves the "pages" db table, parsing the field 
"tx_templavoila_flex" finding the value for the field_status.
This way is pretty nasty and there must be some way of retrieving flexform 
data through typoscript, just like doing:

1.field = title

Could someone point me in the right direction?
