The Holy Grail goes to the Highest Bidder
23/05/10, 10:52am EST

You say you can pass three tests of lethal cunning? You say that you can best a 700 year old Crusader Knight in combat? You can choose wisely the cup of a carpenter? Well do I have a goblet for you!

Actually, you don't have to go through all those challenges if you want to be the owner of the cup of Christ used in the 1989 film; Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade just be the highest bidder.

The auction house of Profiles in History has the Holy Grail prop that Indiana Jones drank from up for auction with opening bids of $15,000 0 $20,000. Here is a description of that sacred Indyfan relic from their website:

921. The Holy Grail from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. (Paramount, 1989) The Holy Grail, made of fired terracotta and painted to resemble ancient earthenware, heavily weathered, with very bright gold leaf paint on the inside surface. In the final sequence of the film, Indy uses it to save his father, Henry Jones, Sr. (played by Sean Connery) via its “Divine healing properties”. An icon of the film and the key plot device, this wonderful artifact is an important and instantly recognizable piece of Hollywood history. Measures 5 ¾ in. tall x 4 ¾ in. diameter. $15,000 – $20,000

You can see some detailed photos of the prop as well at their site.
