 The first Alebrijes originated with the artist Pedro Linares.

In 1936, when he was 30 years old, Linares fell ill with a high fever, which caused him to hallucinate.  He had a high fever with vibrant hallucinations and dreamt of walking in a forest with brightly colored creatures, consisting of wings, horns, tails, fierce teeth and bulging eyes. At the end of his dream, Linares heard voices repeating the nonsense word “alebrije.”
