Female terracotta statue from Magna Graecia, made in Medma (modern-day Italy), 480-460 BCE.

From the 8th century BCE, the Greeks settled southern Italy (Magna Graecia) and Sicily. Over time, the colonies became independent from their mother cities and developed their own economy and art styles. Medma and Gela's local art style used clay and bronze, as there was no marble nearby.
