One of the stories about the birth of the Alebrijes, says that Pedro Linares, an artisan from Mexico City, had a hallucination resulting from a serious illness, in which he dreamed that he was coming to the world of the dead, where he saw an amount of animals of many colors, some with dragon wings, legs of chicken, body of snake, face of cat … that flew around him, shouted: Alebrijes! Alebrijes! Alebrijes!
Currently the alebrije is a Mexican surrealist crafts that can be made of cardboard, paper or wood with different techniques for modeling and creation, decorated with very colorful and striking colors, pure Mexican style. These imaginary beings are conceived from the most creative side and brought to reality in the form of these beautiful figures.
