Why is there no holy grail in "the last supper" by leonardo da vinci?

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.

It's a painting of a ficticious event.

'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.
