[dulizrnl] Quadratic reciprocity

Create a picture illustrating quadratic reciprocity.  One possibility is a quilt of the Kronecker symbol with 3 pixel colors.

Quadratic reciprocity is the gateway to much mathematical investigation.

Interesting mathematical pictures show a mix of order and (seeming) randomness: there is something deep going on.  The sinusoidal oscillations of the Riemann-Siegel Z function, Ulam spiral.
