Terracotta Statuette of a Siren, Archaic Greece (550-500 BC)  The Sirens were mythical creatures said to lure sailors to their doom with their songs. In modern art they often appear as mermaid like creatures because of their link to the sea, however in Greek mythology they were these bird-women who clung to rocks.

Kore statue. The kore is a type of Archaic Greek statue. They may represent a goddess, such as Persephone, priestesses or votaries of a goddess, or generic style of maiden votive, dedicated to a deity. The kore and kouros are illustrations of the Archaic Greeks moving towards realism in art; they are lifelike but highly stylized.
