Last supper

It's almost as if there's a code in there

Da Vinci's Last Supper is one of the most famous paintings of all time. Depicting Jesus and his Disciples breaking bread on that iconic evening, some have noticed a couple of odd things which sound like they came right out of a Tom Hanks movie.

First, there's no chalice on the table. Surely this would be present - it's the central part of the whole piece, where Jesus told them to drink from it to remember him.

The other odd thing are the glasses themselves. Painted around 1495, those drinking glasses appear to be the fine cut glass types you get from a modern glassware store, and not the crude goblets normally associated with the tableware of the day.

Other renderings of the last supper always place the chalice front and central. Some are saying they remember it as being the case with Da Vinci's work - are they experiencing the Mandela Effect?
