figment of one's imagination

Something made up, invented, or fabricated, as in “The long dishevelled hair, the swelled black face, the exaggerated stature were figments of imagination” (Charlotte Bront&edie;, Jane Eyre, 1847). This term is redundant, since figment means “product of the imagination.” [ Early 1800s ]
