Banausic is an adjective that means mundane or only serving a practical purpose.

The Greek word for artisans is banausikos (aon ah SEE kos). If artisans seems like a strange way to define a word for mundane, keep in mind that the word artisans didn’t necessarily refer to artists. It referred broadly to anyone who was skilled at making things with their hands. That mostly included people making pretty mundane things like cups or knives.

Everyone raved about the psychedelic poster covering the hole on my wall.. Little did they know it was there for banausic reasons.
