Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian

Drawing Activities

About this activity
Every day of the week artists Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian wear a different colour. Then they note the objects they find that are the colour of each day.

These colours, which can be found in traditional Islamic architecture, are based on the legend of Bahram Gur, the Sasanian King who ordered his architect to construct seven domes for each of his princesses. The colour of each dome is said to represent the seven different planets the princesses came from.

You can complete seven activities that Ramin, Rokni and Hesam have created – one for each day of the week. You might like to try wearing the colour of the day as you complete the activities.
