Mount Prisank (2547 m), also named Prisojnik, is a majestic mountain in the Eastern Julian Alps. It is located near the mountain pass Vrsic. The mountain boats three natural features: the Great Prisank Window, the Little Prisank Window and the Pagan Girl (Ajdovska deklica), an image of a woman's face, which was created by rock fractures.
The legend says that the Pagan Girl is an image of a petrified pagan giantess. She was a kind and warm – hearted woman who would help mountaineers and people transporting goods find their way through snow bizzards to Trenta. She was also a fate deity (Sojenica) who was able to foretell the destiny of the newborn.
She foretold a newborn baby boy from Trenta that he would becomea a brave hunter, unrivalled by any other at the foot of Prisank. He would shoot a white chamois with golden horns, sell the horns and become incredibly rich. When the other Fates heard of her prophesy, they cursed her. As soon as she returned to her home in Prisank, she turned to stone.
