Marcus Aurorealis [Marcus Aurelius]

1) Aurelius means golden one
2) Aurora (Borealis) is (northern) lights
3) Aurelius and Aurora both stem from the same proto-Italic word, Auzom, from a proto-Indo-European word meaning dawn.
4) Auzom sounds awesome

This is arguably a quadruple pun, I'm basically playing four-dimensional chess in this weekly challenge.

Thanks, MrQuetch! It was ok here but I think I would have struggled with anything more than a black background.

The lighting and statue are both awesome! I don't know how I would've portrayed the northern lights with pixel art. Great job!
