Syriana started with a set of three ceramic cups that each bears part of a poem written in Arabic calligraphy.
以一套三个陶瓷杯上的叙利亚语开始,每个杯子上都有用阿拉伯书法书写的诗的一部分。
She is beautiful.I love her and her name is Shaam.Shaam which is Damascus and also my daughter’s name.
她很美丽,我爱她,她叫萨姆。萨姆就是大马士革,我女儿也叫萨姆。
Khaldoun Alghatrif stumbled on the cups online.
哈杜恩·阿尔加特里夫在网上无意中发现了这些杯子。
So I was wondering who made this,and I started researchingand I got into this big company that takes care of sealing handicrafts.
我想知道是谁做的这些杯子,于是开始寻找,然后找到了这家负责密封手工艺品的企业。
The idea of importing Syrian crafts and heritage goods was conceived.
因此,进口叙利亚工艺品和遗产的想法应运而生。
We wanted to start showing America the other face of Syria,the beautiful face of Syria,something they don’t see in the news.
我们想开始向美国展示叙利亚的另一面,叙利亚美丽的一面,他们在新闻中看不到的一面。
Khaldoun immigrated to the U.S.in 2015 and his brother Majd Alghatrif a few years earlier.
2015年哈杜恩移民到美国。他的兄弟马吉德·阿尔加特里夫比他早几年移居到这。
Together,they opened up Syriana Gallery last December in an 18th century building in an elegant city neighborhood that they say it resembles their hometown As-Suwayda in Syria.
去年12月,他们在一座优雅的城市社区中的一栋十八世纪的建筑里开了一家叙利亚画廊,他们说那里很像他们的家乡叙利亚的苏韦达。
Gallery captures the main heritage industries of Syria,ranging from exotic mosaic work to mother-of-pearl inlays,damask textiles and brocade silk.They are all deeply rooted in our culture and they present generations of master craftsmen.
画廊展示了叙利亚的主要遗产,从极具异域风情的镶嵌图案作品到螺钿镶嵌画、锦缎纺织和凸花绸。它们都深深植根于我们的文化中,代表着代代工匠大师们的心血。
Alghatrif says the gallery has two missions,preserving the heritage and supporting artisans by establishing a market for their products.
阿尔加特里夫说,画廊有两项使命,保护遗产和通过为产品建立市场来和支持工匠。
Artisans work in the tourism industry mainly,and with a lack of tourism,there’s no prospects for making the living and that was one of the main drives for people fleeing the country,besides being attacked by the war itself.
工匠主要为旅游业服务,旅游业不景气,使得他们谋生前景渺茫,这是除了战争外,迫使人们逃离国家的主要原因之一。
Now the Alghatrif have expanded to offer a more comprehensive Syrian cultural experience.
现在,阿尔加特里夫将画廊扩展,使其能够提供更全面的叙利亚文化体验。
They have added food.
他们新增了餐饮部分。
Syrian coffee traditionally boiled in heated sands is a specialty.

我们所有的叙利亚菜肴都是自制的,并且非常正宗。厨房里的工人都是叙利亚妇女难民,我试着培训她们在这里的商业环境中工作。
The Alghatrif vision to deliver a different message about Syria to the American people is not lost.
阿尔加特里夫一家向美国人民传递关于不同的叙利亚的愿景并没有落空。
When I think of Syria today,I think of it as a war-torn country.But when I come to a place like this,and I get to see all the beautiful culture or like the cultural aspect of it.It’s really cool.
当我想到今天的叙利亚时,我认为它就是一个饱受战争蹂躏的国家,但当我来到这里,我能看到它所有美丽的文化,或者它文化的一些方面,这真的很酷。
I love the rich ingredients.I love having authentic cuisine.And the artwork,the craftsmanship,is beautiful.
