    Seated man with two sirens, Greek, South Italy, ca. 350–300 BCThe J. Paul Getty Museum Originally brightly painted, this nearly life-size terracotta sculpture is characteristic of the Greek colonies in South Italy. With its funerary imagery [sirens were associated with death], the group may have decorated a tomb. The seated man is a poet or singer, as shown by his open mouth and his now-missing lyre. His identity is unknown.
