I have recently received a cross similar to the one in the link below.  There are differences toward the top with mine, but the bottom, underneath the skull of Adam, the same "cave" exists with a plant seemingly inside of it.  What is the symbolism of this?  Does it have something to do with Paradise?  Any help would be appreciated!

Yes, I love that!  My phone's screen saver is even a cross with Τόπος Κρανίου Παράδεισος Γέγονε written on it.  Does the plant, however, directly relate to that?  Even crosses without anything below the skull of Adam have those initials, so I was not sure...
