Long Description:
[SLO]
V gorskem raju nad Komno so nekoc prebivale dobrosrcne bele vile. Vile so imele credo planinskih koz, ki jo je vodil bel kozel z zlatimi rogovi, imenovan Zlatorog. Zlatorogovi rogovi naj bi bili kljuc do ogromnega zaklada, skritega na vrtu na vrhu gore.

Mladi lovec iz Trente, ki so ga vzgojile bele vile, se je zaljubil v lepo dekle iz doline. Prinesel ji je šopke divjega cvetja, ki so osvojili njeno ljubezen. Toda bogat beneški trgovec je dekle zaprosil za roko, ji podaril nakit in ji rekel, da ji bo lovec prinesel zlate rogove Zlatoroga, ce jo bo mocno ljubil. Lovec, ki ni bil vec v dekletovi naklonjenosti, je bil obupan in globoko prizadet.

Tisto noc se je odpravil na pot, da bi našel miticno žival. Zgodaj zjutraj je na visoki skali zagledal Zlatoroga in ga ustrelil, vendar je pozabil na kozorogovo carobno moc. Iz krvi smrtno ranjene živali je zrasel triglavski cvet.

Zlatorog se je z rastlino obnovil in se pognal proti lovcu. Njegovi svetleci rogovi so oslepili prestrašenega fanta, tako da je zdrsnil na skali in padel v prepad. Natecena reka Soca je truplo odnesla v dolino.

Zlatorog je opustošil vrt na vrhu gore in skupaj z belimi vilami za vedno izginil. Njegov zaklad pa ostaja skrit v gorah ob vznožju Triglava.

Ta skulptura nas danes spominja na zlatega kozoroga.


[EN]
The mountain paradise above Komna used to be the home of kind-hearted white fairies. The fairies had a herd of mountain goats led by a white chamois buck with golden horns, called Zlatorog (Goldenhorn). Zlatorog's horns were believed to be the key to the immense treasure hidden in the mountaintop garden.

A young hunter from Trenta, who was raised by the white fairies, fell in love with a beautiful girl from the valley. He brought her bouquets of wild flowers that won her love. But a rich Venetian merchant proposed to the girl, gave her jewellery and told her that her hunter would bring her the golden horns of Zlatorog if he loved her dearly. The hunter, no longer in the girl's good graces, was desperate and deeply hurt.

On that night, he set off to find the mythical animal. Early in the morning he spotted Zlatorog on a high rock and shot him, but forgot about the chamois' magical powers. From the blood of the fatally wounded animal grew the Triglav Flower.

Restored by the plant, Zlatorog thrust towards the hunter. His shining horns blinded the terri-fied boy so that he slipped on a rock and fell into a precipice. The swollen Soca river brought the corpse to the valley.

Zlatorog ravaged its mountaintop garden and disappeared for good, along with the white fair-ies. His treasure, however, remains hidden in the mountains at the foot of Triglav.

This Sculpture here reminds us today on that golden chamois.
