If you look at a high res version of the original painting, its quite obvious its a depiction of EARTH and the "antennas" are two pens/markers held by the two guys.

In ages that that centered around the Church, surely any ariel object that was simply not a bird was deemed to be either a messenger, or a sign from above? How else to explain them when no other viable alternative existed in your world? And what better way to relay these "signs", what must have been viewed as visible, divine personification, to others than in religious imagery?
