There are only a limited number of tanned musk ox skins available for sale at any time.  The skins vary in size.  One sample skin was 58" wide and 65" long on the hide side.  When viewed from the fur side (i.e., the top), allow another 12-19" of hair extending out on all sides.  The skin is a long dense coat of coarse dark brown guard hairs over a paler underfur.

Chichester was the supplier for the muskox hides used in the movie 10,000 B.C.
