Art of war: Dubai gallery haven for Syrian artists

In this Monday, Sept. 16, 2013 photo, Syrian artist Tammam Azzam, 23, poses in front of one of his works, a digital print titled "Syrian Olympic" during the Young Collectors Auction at Ayyam gallery in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The auction Monday in Dubai's evolving art district served as a window into a small but forward-looking effort to save one niche of Syria's artistic community with no end in sight to the civil war that has already claimed more than 100,000 lives.(AP Photo/Kamran Jebreili)
