Hi Farai,

Nice work!

Inspired by your examples

nelsonMandela = Entity["PopularCurve", "NelsonMandelaCurve"]["Graphics"];
flagColors = Most@Sort@DominantColors@Entity["Country", "SouthAfrica"]["Flag"];

SeedRandom[19180718]; (* Date of birth *)
nelsonMandela /. RGBColor[___] :> RandomChoice@flagColors /. Axes -> False

enter image description here

Thanks, Rohit. I like the SA flag coloring of the Mandela curve - much appreciated.

Hello Farai,

nice - thanks for sharing! How on earth you could find out that there is something like a "NelsonMandelaCurve" or "PopularCurve" in general ???

There are many interesting entity types to explore, see this. To get a list


I first learned about these curves from this Wolfram Alpha Blog post.

Hello Rohit,

many thanks for these interesting links - maybe I have to explore this field more deeply.

BTW: Do you know "ImageRandomlyColored"?

Entity["PopularCurve", "NelsonMandelaCurve"][EntityProperty["PopularCurve", "ImageRandomlyColored"]]
