I think it is mathematical correct, but perhaps there might be a more beautiful visualisation possible.

After removing some bugs and some duplicates it looks nicer:
http://devalco.de/matrix_with_det_1/...with_det_1.php
The matrixs mod p, with p=3 mod 4 look o.k.
but the other matrixs mod p, with p=1 mod 4 contain elements which do not "lead" to the identity matrix:
For example: p:=37 (16, 23, 23, 33)^(36*38)=/=(1,0,0,1).
Why ? or is it a bug ?
There might be a more mathematically accurate title for this thread:
something like : visualisation of different fields mod p
Perhaps a mod could improve the title.
