    Da Vinci did actually include the grail in his painting, if you look hard enough. He concealed it as a symbol on the wall above the head of St. Bartholomew, the disciple at the extreme left.

    'The Holy Grail' is just a name given to the cup used by Jesus at the last supper. There are cups depicted on the table - well, glasses, actually, which I would not have thought was historically accurate. If there ever was a holy grail it was probably just a small pottery cup.

    First. The Last Supper was a work of Art painted 1500 years after the events it was meant to depict, it wasn't a photograph of actual events, but an artist's representation. Its importance was part of Arthurian legends of Britain and may not have even known by Da Vinci.
