Best Answer

The boys don't wear masks. Jack and his tribe paint their faces with red & white clay and add black marks with charcoal. The paint acts like a mask, helping to camouflage them when they hunt the pigs but more importantly freeing them from any responsibility for their actions. While wearing the paint the boys feel free to do anything they wish with no sense of guilt, remorse or restraint.
