The Los Angeles-based Annenberg Foundation has revealed it purchased a set of 24 Hopi and Apache masks at a controversial Paris auction and will return them to tribes in northeastern Arizona who had tried get the sale blocked.
After an unsuccessful law suit filed by lawyers for advocacy group Survival International, who argued the masks were the cultural property of the Hopi and San Carlos Apache tribes, the Annenberg Foundation swooped up twenty-four of the masks “for the sole purpose of returning them to their rightful owners,” it said on Wednesday.
The philanthropic organization paid $530,000 when the items went under the hammer on Monday.

This makes me want to cry. It’s nice to see someone do the right thing for once.
Oh my goooooooooosh! This is amazing, this is beautiful.
Snow Ghosts is the collaboration between Throwing Snow & recent Phaeleh collaborator Augustus Ghost. Recently releasing debut album ‘A Small Murmuration’, they’ve been The Guardian’s ‘New Band of the Day’, Zane Lowe’s ‘Next Hype’, and have played a live acoustic session on Dermot O’Leary’s BBC Radio 2 show.
‘And The World Was Gone’ pins a sense of unease to an acoustic guitar riff, cello and Augustus Ghost’s most affecting vocal. Remixes come from Roly Porter (one half of bass duo Vex’d), who brings out the track’s darkness, whilst D&B maestro Calibre emphasises the melancholy in its melody. Finally, our featured track here, in-demand Bristol producer Kahn provides the most arresting cover version imaginable.
The 12” is cut to heavyweight 180g vinyl by mastering engineer of the year, Matt Colton.
