The pig’s head signifies the Lord of the Flies by the way the boys hunted and brutally killed the pig. They slaughtered the pig by sticking a spear into its butt. Jack and his hunters believe that the pig’s head is an offering, so they can be safe from the beast; however, they are never safe from the beast. In the beginning, the island was a peaceful and comfortable place for the
The wild is a savage place that causes young boys to perform crazy, uncivilized actions. In William Golding’s, Lord of the Flies, and John Steinbeck’s, Of Mice and Men, the common theme of death was foreshadowed through Piggy only being considered useful for his spectacles, and the death of Candy’s dog, the fact that the boys hunt and eat pigs, and the death of the water snake, and the dehumanization of Piggy and Lennie. Piggy’s death is foreshadowed by only being considered useful for his spectacles, much like that of the reason for the death of Candy’s dog.

It was used by Jack to try and reduce the fear that everyone on the island had of the beast. As it stood on the stick it had a evil smile (grin), this was when the head became a symbol of evil, since a grin represents doing something sneaky or evil. The main event with the sow 's head besides the killing was the conversation that Simon had. During the conversation the Lord Of The Flies intimidated Simon by saying he was “just an ignorant, silly little boy” and for thinking the beast is “something you could hunt and kill”. Simon was not represented as a ignorant little boy but rather imaginative and weird in the way he thought about things such as who the beast was.
This is when he first encounters the pig on a stick, which he names The Lord of the Flies. His fear allows him to hallucinate the sow talking to him and telling him that the savages were going to eventually kill him and letting him know that his evil was inside him and not physically terrorizing the boys on the island. The evil that the sow’s head spoke of was in the air as Simon crawled out of the forest after a fainting spell. Jack immediately took the initiative of telling his tribe to “Kill the beast! Cut his throat!
A man named William Beckford once said “It is a great evil to look upon mankind with too clear vision. You seem to be living among wild beasts, and you become a wild beast yourself.” William Golding clearly emphasizes a theme similar to this in his novel Lord of the Flies.
