"'I bet it's gone tea-time,' said Piggy. 'What do they think they're going to do on that mountain"(Golding 38) Piggy is more tied to society and therefor represents civilization on the island. This is proved in this quote because Piggy is would rather do tea-time than make a fire.
Jack Jack symbolizes savagery
"We can use this(the conch) to call the others. Have a meeting. They'll come when they hear us-"(Golding 16) The conch represents a tool that brings all the boys together. It brings them to have civilized conversation and understand what they need to do on the island. At first when the conch is blown it brings everyone together but when it breaks it shows the boys have gone to true savagery.
Masks and Facepaint The masks and facepaint symbolize savagery.
"'My specs!' howled Piggy. 'give me my specs!"(Golding 41) Piggy sees civilization through his glasses, when they are broken his attachment to civilization seems to fade further away from him. They allow him to see clearer than the rest of the boys on the island.
Lord of The Flies The lord of the flies symbolizes savagery.
Kill the pig, cut her throat, spill the blood” (Golding 69). When Jack becomes obsessed with killing a pig he spends each day hunting, until he finally kills a pig. He begins chanting and continues obsessing over killing.
"He capered towards Bill, and the mask was a thing on its own, behind which Jack hid, liberated from shame and self-consciousness."(Golding 64) The masks are a tool the boys use to hide behind. Jacks actions aren't his when he's behind his mask, for the mask symbolizes freedom to do whatever he wants and face no consequences.
"He stood back and the head hung there, a little blood dribbling down the stick." (Golding 136-137) The Pig's head is put on the stick by jack as the offering to the beast. It is a symbol of the savagery that plays out on the island.
