Insects have been used both literally and figuratively in art since the Renaissance, as well as in other aspects of culture. In addition to the portrayal of insects in fine arts like paintings and sculpture, art forms also include the direct use of beetle wing (elytra) in paintings, fabrics, and jewelry. Insects have occasionally taken the shape of distinguishing elements in many art forms, such as Art Nouveau.
