In the paper firstly insect, Entomology and Cultural Entomology consepts are explained and the place of the insects in the ecosystem is mentioned. Cultural Entomology’s occuring process as an academic research zone and Dr. Charles Hogue’s works on this area are expressed. After that, the corpus of the insects used in Egyptian Art, religious and Daily objects are searched. By using different insect types in these areas, Egyptian art is a rich example in order to understand Cultural Entomology. The insects’s deification,symbolizing the immortality and usage on the Daily objects, are examined over Wall paintings and seals. while doing this,the insects’ formational and ecological feratures are explained and the relationship between them explicated by both religion and art. So, the area of Cultural Entomology is examplified over Egyptian art.
