The top section of the Grail tablet is missing, lost to the ages, but Indy translated the remaining inscription as "...who drinks the water I shall give him, says the Lord, will have a spring inside him welling up for eternal life. Let them bring me to your holy mountain in the place where you dwell. Across the desert and through the mountains to the Canyon of the Crescent Moon, to the temple where the cup that holds the blood of Jesus Christ resides forever". The text is a mixture of Latin psalms, retranslated scripture and made-up passages.
The tablet is cast in plaster, painted brown to replicate a sandstone finish and intentionally distressed to look ancient. The text is debossed into the tablet, along with the remaining part of the cross. The piece has some wear from production use and age, with some scratching and scuffing to the paintwork, most notably on the back of the tablet. Dimensions: 50 cm x 49 cm x 4.5 cm (19 3/4" x 19 1/4" x 1 3/4")
