Jacks tribe gradually becomes more animalistic, emphasising the practice of applying face paint from coloured clay discovered by Sam and Eric and charred remains of trees. The narrative voice in the story reveals to the reader that these painted faces represent the hunters masking their more civilized selves in order to liberate their inner savages. Jack summons all of his hunters to stalk a wild pig. The pig's head that has been cut off by Jack, put on a stick sharpened at both ends, stuck in the ground, and offered to the "beast." Created out of fear, the Lord of the Flies used to be a mother sow who, though at one time clean, loving, and innocent, has now become a manically smiling, bleeding image of evil. This transformation clearly represents the transformation that Jack and the boys have undergone during their time in the island. In addition, the name "Lord of the Flies" is the literal English translation of Beelzebub, a demonic figure that is often considered synonymous with Satan.
